Lime House [LEFT] and Lime [RIGHT], comprise roughly half of the brick built Edwardian manor house in Lime Park, that has was divided into four terraced units to make the maintenance and rating more manageable by Wickens Estates Ltd. These houses are serviced by a shared drive access that is part tarmac and part gravel. The upkeep of older character properties is considerable where the grounds are tended routinely by a gardening service and the tall ceilings mean heating a larger area of air than would be the case with a more modern design. Houses like this is the country are typically heated by oil fired central heating systems, with deliveries of fuel by truck being necessary involving free access at all times.
The village of Herstmonceux is only a few minutes drive, though parking is limited in Gardner (the village high) Street. There are two convenience stores and a Post Office, two restaurants and two public houses. The village hall was moved from the centre of the village west some years ago to allow for a bigger building and more parking.

ACCORDING TO DIRECTOR STATS UK:
ODD PARKING - The East Sussex Act provides that access should be clear at all times for Fire Brigade trucks and appliances. This part of the drive in Lime Park is subject to covenants to ensure access is clear for passing and re-passing, apart from any prescriptive right. Parking in a manner such as to obstruct access obviously places any resident in the Park at risk as to fires, apart from any covenant breach and should be avoided. This picture was taken in September 2017 in the morning. The Freelander was moved shortly after.
On one occasion many years ago, Elizabeth Cowling (a former occupier of Lime House) deliberately parked her car at the fork entrance on the other side of the Park, the object being to obstruct access to visitors attending a garage sale. That was one amusing example of neighbours in the locality not getting on as well they might - somewhat defeating the tranquility of the pleasing country setting. By parking her car in such inconsiderate manner access was blocked for the other Park residents as well.
LIME - In the grounds of Lime are a swimming pool and a tennis court. Other additions include a large double garage and a cottage that provides an income for the proprietor's. This area was formerly a market garden where the goods were mostly sent to market at Hailsham.

SUSSEX INDEX A - Z
RECYCLING - Wealden District Council collect household waste on Wednesdays. In this photograph you can see that a truck roughly the size of a Fire appliance could not negotiate this corner of Lime Park in 2016. Unfortunately on this occasion the other side of the park was also packed with parked cars leaving this driver in a very difficult position. He had to reverse back down to Lime Cottage and all the way out of the drive onto Church Road. One can only imagine the difficulty and dangers of backing a truck into a narrow country lane. If this had been a fire fighting situation, this would have been a violation of the East Sussex Act. Ultimately, the value of any property in Lime Park is likely to be affected by access issues such as this.
HEATING OIL - Large houses in the country are typically heated by oil fired central heating systems of LPG where town gas supplies are not available. Regular deliveries of fuel by large trucks is a way of life, the frequency of such deliveries depends on the size of your oil tanks and the volume of the house being heated. Where we are headed for a sustainable Britain, it is difficult to see how solar and wind energy might be incorporated in many of the properties in Lime Park. Fortunately, green electricity supplies are available.
In the northern corner of Lime Park, Herstmonceux Museum has a solar furnace and heated water storage, with solar panels and a wind turbine to help offset their carbon footprint. The Museum is privately run with viewing by appointment only at the moment for archaeological interest groups and historical societies.
LOG JAM - These logs were blocking the alternative east access from Gardner Street for many months before they were finally removed. All occupiers in Lime Park enjoy rights to use this entrance as part of their Deed Covenants. The access is now clear save for occasional vehicle parking and friendly residents who always cooperate with vehicle movements.
