Ashdown Forest is a roughly triangular area of land with Forest Row at its apex. It is all that now remains of the once huge Wealden Forest of Anderida, which in Roman times stretched for 120 miles from Canterbury to Chichester. Sadly, much of the Forest was felled to make way for agriculture and to fuel the furnaces of the once thriving Sussex iron industry that reached its peak in the 17th century.

At all times of the year it is a place of stark beauty with incredible views in all directions.
