Please don’t park across the entrance road.

The car park is closed

But SCP is still open.

A message from the Countryside Team:

Is the park open? Yes, I would think it still can be open but access will be on foot and people will need to walk to it from their home address and once there, would need to apply the social distance of two meters. They shouldn’t be meeting up with people from outside their own place of residence and should be taking only one walk a day.
If everybody sticks to the guidelines, then I see no reason why Southwick Country Park has to be closed at present. Obviously if the government advice changes then we will need to take what ever action they recommend.

Go safely and look after yourselves.


There are traffic cones across the entrance to the main car park. Neither the Friends nor their Countryside Officer know who put them there or if they mean that the park is closed. We are making enquiries and will keep you informed. In the meantime, let’s assume that the park is closed.
