|More information about Sheffield Park, Sussex||Location map|
Sheffield Park is situated on the A275 road a little north of North Chailey. If you approach from the south you will see the Bluebell Railway first and it is well signed. A little over a quarter of a mile further on is the entrance to Sheffield Park Gardens which is also fairly well signed.
If you approach from the north then the entrance to Sheffield Park Gardens comes first and you won't have a lot of warning as you approach it round a bend. However if you do miss it drive on until you see the Bluebell Railway entrance on your right where there will be plenty of room to turn round.
Sheffield Park Gardens
The Rhododendrons and Azaleas that you see in these pictures are only in bloom for a limited time around the latter half of May. We were there in the first few days of June and although the amount of colour was truly astonishing some of the blooms were beginning to die back. The flowering season will also depend a lot on the weather. You can, however, always telephone the gardens to find out what the state is
