Exploring the High Weald
Thirty miles south of London you can explore the High Weald - one of the best surviving medieval landscapes in Northern Europe. Whenever you come, and whatever you do, you will encounter:
- mysterious ancient woodlands and fern-clad streams
- sunken lanes created by Saxon drovers and Tudor ironmasters
- cottages, farms and manor houses built from timber and sandstone and
- wildlife-rich fields and heaths.
There are lots of ways to explore the area. For a free day out consider a walk or cycle ride or visiting one of our many nature reserves. Other attractions include medieval castles, beautiful historic houses and gardens, well-preserved steam railways and scenic reservoirs. If you can stay a while you will find intriguing places to stay and we recommend seeking out local products for a memento of your visit ...
