High Weald

Description: Cranbrook lies 15 miles south of Maidstone, to the east of the main road to the former fishing harbour of Hastings, Sussex. The Parish of Cranbrook has a population approaching 6000 and the town retains its dense mediaeval layout of streets and alleys, with a number of buildings of great interest dating from the 15th to the 19th century. These display all the elements of wealden building: timber frames, weatherboard, stucco and the rarer and more local mathematical weathering which mimics brickwork.
