High Weald

Description: East Grinstead, a town which goes back many hundreds of years (there is evidence of iron working from the Roman days), is on the edges of Kent, Surrey and Sussex - it sits on a sandstone ridge beside the Ashdown Forest. Its most attractive feature is the wealth of medieval houses in the wide High Street. Housing development in the last half of the 20th century have down the wider town no favours, but if you stick to the High Street area, there is much to see and enjoy.
