High Weald

Description: The name Sandhurst means simply a place which is mostly wooded in sandy ground. It occupies a low ridge, surrounded possibly as late as the Norman conquest with sea-water estuaries, at least at high tide. The ridge ends at Newenden, where floods have shown what the land and sea may have looked like in the past. Sandhurst has limited services. The nearest shopping is in Hawkhurst about 4 miles to the west.
