Ford Park Location Map

Our postcode is LA12 7JP but if you follow your sat nav you will end up in the wrong place. This will only be about 30yds from our entrance but a dead end, so once you get within spitting distance, use your eyes.

Ford Park is situated just below the lighthouse on the Hill known as Hoad Hill. This lighthouse is a monument to Sir John Barrow from the 19th century.

To find us, turn off the A590 into Hart st, you'll see the Swan Inn and the Swan chinese take away on your left. Go about 500yds and turn right into Ford Park Cresent, not into Poplar grove which has a large sign for Ford Park at this junction.
Look for signs to St Mary's Hospice and Hoad Hill.

Upon entering Ford Park Cres. you can see the entrance to the park dead ahead. Drive through the entrance and to the top of the field, and find a car park opposite the natural play area.

The coach house and Ford house are a short walk from this car park, about 50 yds.

Support for Proposed Development

Thursday 8 January 2015

Proposed development to secure the future of Ford Park:Information for members, friends & neighbours Summary of the plans Ford Park Community Group wants to build eight houses (two of them single storey) at the entrance to the park, near to Ford Park Crescent. The houses will cover a relatively small area of the parkland and will not affect the use of Ford Park as a resource for the whole community. Crucially, the income from this development will secure the future of Ford Park as a public amenity. If this modest development does not go ahead, the charity will be forced to wind up and the land will have to be sold. If this happens, there is a real risk that Ford Park will end up being a neglected eyesore, or that the whole park will be acquired as a site for development. This further information explains the detail of the plans, how they will affect the park and the neighbourhood, and why Ford Park needs your support to ensure its future as a place residents and visitors can enjoy for many years to come.Read More
