Ashdown forest – full of wonderful walks

DSCF1290I love Ashdown forest, the huge clumps of yellow gorse were lovely today.  Then there are all the associations with Pooh Bear 1-DSC08306including the shop in Hartfield and the bridge where the fictional Christopher Robin played Pooh Sticks. Today however we just stopped at the King’s Standing and looked at the walks we might take later in the Spring.

King’s Standing is believed to be the site of a stand or hide, past which deer would be driven for the benefit of hunters in Tudor times.  Henry VIII  is supposed to have hunted deer on this spot.
