High Weald

The High Weald is a cultural landscape - one that has been shaped and changed by many people over centuries.

In the past it is the area's natural resources that have drawn people to the area; its sandrock has sheltered mesolithic hunters; its woodlands attracted Anglo-Saxon swineherders; its iron, water and trees combined to make it an industrial heartland in Roman and Tudor times.
