> The Sussex Weald
Forest Map 1692Thirty miles south of London and half way to the South coast of England lies an area of outstanding natural beauty combined with a fascinating history called the Sussex Weald. 

The delightful villages and towns of Fletching, Horsted Keynes, Hartfield, Withyham (the withy water-meadow), Groombridge and Eridge (eagles ridge) are to the north and west. The highest points on the Forest Ridge are at Crowborough (Scotland in Sussex) and Rotherfield.

To the east is Frant (the place of the fern) and Wadhurst, and the southern boundary encompasses Isfield, Little Horsted (also known as Horsted Parva), Uckfield (Ucca's field), Maresfield, Buxted (Buxted the Beautiful), Framfield, East Hoathly, Waldron and Mayfield (the sweetest village in England).

The Sussex Weald website catalogues the people, places, maps, drawings, engravings, books, writings and numerous lists and directories prior to 1900 into one integrated database of information about one of the most attractive parts of England.
