Although usually there are regular trains from London Charing Cross and Waterloo to Wadhurst (the nearest station) during the week 25-29th October there are major engineering works on the line as follows:
– Buses will replace calling at all station between Tunbridge Wells and Hastings.
– Semi-fast bus services will operate between Tunbridge Wells and Hastings, stopping at Wadhurst only.
That week, trains from London will stop at Tunbridge Wells and a bus will go to Wadhurst – see below. The bus arrives at Wadhurst station around 15.15 or 15.45.
Alternatively, a cab from Tunbridge Wells Station to Flimwell is about £25 – £30 (meter, less if people share.)
Route 254 runs from Tunbridge Wells, stopping at Tunbridge Wells rail station at 14.39 and Wadhurst station at 14.55 and stopping at Flimwell Hare & Hounds traffic lights at 15.11. (approximately a quarter mile from Flimwell Park site.) If asked the driver will stop by the Flimwell Park entrance.
There is a 254 bus from Flimwell Hare & Hounds at 17.47 arriving to Tunbridge Wells station at 18.26.
