It's well worth a visit following the path from Alexandra Park, but be warned some parts of the path can get very muddy and the whole path is definitely not suitable for pushchairs.

To get the full experience, I recommend going from Alexandra Park (the entrance from the main reservoir) and follow the path until the very end. It takes about 20-30 minutes to walk and the path is pretty well maintained with some new footbridges.

Ignore what Google Maps tells you. Instead park in the road by Harmer's Reservoir (which was free when we went), then walk to the miniature railway, heading to Buckshole Reservoir. Follow the path around the East side adjacent to St Helen's Road, and you will pick up the path into the Nature Reserve that leads to the Gill.

Just be aware when you make it to the end to see the Old Roar Gill, there will be no roar if it hasn't been raining! We met a couple of locals who said that it is best to go after significant rain the day before. But what's weird is that you are literally in a valley surrounded by roads and houses, with people's gardens overlooking the Gill!

It is worth a visit if you are looking for a slightly challenging walk, and it's completely free as well. If it's been raining, take wellies.

The woodland is lovely and we had a nice stroll through the park.
We went on a dry week so there was no waterfall, we were essentially stood under a main road pass looking at a rock formation.

We spontaneously decided to visit old roar gill (without reading tips on here) and followed google directions which took us to Penhurst drive which was completely wrong! We ended up going to Alexandra park and they have sign postings for it after you get to the information point and the park cafe. The sign postings get quite scarce so we did get a little lost but just remember you need to get out of the park and cross the main road and re enter the park. Locals are really friendly and happy to help so ask!
If you want to access the walk quicker park your car on St Helens road and enter the park through one of the entrances through there. The walk from the park to the beginning of old roar gill is 2km. Then the trek through the woodlands to the waterfalls is about 10 minutes. The treck is so beautiful we went in heavy rain and it was very slippery and muddy and wouldn’t recommend bringing toddlers. The path is very off beaten and buggy’s wouldn’t be possible. After we finished we ended up on the beginning of Ghyllside avenue (door numbers around 1-10) with a street of houses and civilisation! These people are so lucky to have this as practically their back garden!
There was lots of water in the falls but it was raining very heavily and I can imagine on sunny/drier days the falls are probably not as spectacular!
A great urban water fall and would definitely do it again!

We went on this walk with dogs and kids and really enjoyed it. Interesting, scenic walk, which for some reason felt a bit Jurassic at times as some of the plants surrounding us were so tall.

An absolutely beautiful place. I was looking for somewhere to visit while staying at Rye. Found this on Google. We had quite a bit of difficulty finding the place as on Google it gives a postcode and address of Penhurst Close which we found was wrong and couldn't access it from there. Reading the trip advisor reviews we saw that a lot of people found it by walking through Alexandra Park which we did and then found it quite easily after that.
lt was well worth the effort, beautiful green woodland and a wonderful waterfall at the end of our walk. Very peaceful and cool out of the summer sunshine.
We went as a couple but I would recommend Old Roar Gill to families as well. I know my kids would of loved exploring here when they were younger. You can easily imagine dinosaurs roaming around in the fern. You could take a picnic and enjoy it in Alexandra Park and make it a lovely cost free afternoon.
There is a coffee shop in the park and there also was an ice cream van.
Parking was easy and toilets available.

Went on a walk with our 7 children of mixed ages. All found the walk thoroughly enjoyable.

A little hidden gem we also went as a couple and found it peaceful relaxing and tranquil

Visited the old road gill. Found it by driving up ghyllside Avenue and finding a alley way o the left which takes you down to the stream follow the path to the right and you will come to the water fall.
It’s a lovely walk around the stream. I walked down to the bridge then up back up to the road.
Great photos to be taken with Kids and family.

If you walk from the town centre and keep within the park you will eventually come across the portion of Alexandra park. It is surprisingly large and as suggested by its name runs beside a shadow fast flowing ghyll. It is pretty much just a path but it is well maintained with wooden steps, decked bridges, dry paths. There are a couple of very picturesque woodland waterfalls which would make a fantastic backdrop to photos but the flow is very much dependant on recent rainfall. The same is said for the ghyll itself. After a storm the stream is ferocious with recently fallen trees and branches. There are areas that children can paddle in their wellies on the gravel. Due to its shaded valley nature it is lovely and cool in the height of the summer. If you live in Hastings and haven't walked end to end then you're missing something

If you enjoy exploring unique woodland areas then this is well worth a visit. This walk through woods alongside the historic Old Roar Ghyll is a charming meander at any time of the year, as the changing face of nature means every walk is different. The Borough Council do a good job in maintaining the area in my opinion so the woodland is managed and the bridges are kept in good repair. Boots or similar footwear are advised except in the driest conditions. Explore waterfalls, wildlife and the roar of the ghyll with a visit. Easy access to and from the delightful Alexandra Park with its own family friendly walks and cafe.

We stumbled across Old Roar Gill by accident whilst exploring Alexandra Park. The path follows the stream up this deeply cut hidden valley, under the road bridge and concludes at the Little Roar Gill waterfall. It’s a pretty walk, but was a bit slippery and muddy in places, but it was January and we weren’t wearing the most appropriate footwear!

It’s a fairly easy walk, but would be great adventure for younger children!
