East Sussex - Iron Country
Fair Lane RobertsbridgeWe have named this area in East Sussex, Iron Country because until the early 19th century a large variety of iron implements were manufactured in forges within this location. The earliest record of iron manufacture, is the Roman forge which was discovered at Stonegate during the 1970's.

Firehills and Rother Levels
WinchelseaWe think of this area as Firehills and Rother Levels because the area in general is influenced by the river Rother and its tributaries, the cliffs along the coast from Fairlight to Hastings are known as the Firehills, due to the number of fires started in the gorse during the summer months.

Inland Hills to the Pevensey Levels
Pevensey Levels near Normans Bay
The Inland Hills to Pevensey Levels name came because it runs down from the line of hills from Battle to Heathfield towards the flat marshy land at Pevensey. The area mostly consists of small villages, with many ancient churches, and a few small towns with interesting history.

High Weald and Oast Houses
Oasts near SissinghurstThe High Weald and Oast Houses area lies from the Sussex Borders into Kent. This area was in the forest of Andreasweald, and there are many Oast houses locally, which were used to dry hops for the beer industry.

Seven Sisters to the Ashdown Forest
Seven Sisters to the Ashdown Forest describes this area nicely. The Ashdown Forest lies north of the area, and the Seven Sisters is the name of the seven chalk cliffs that can be seen from the headland at Seaford looking east towards Eastbourne across the Cuckmere valley.

Ashdown Forest and the Ouse Valley
We have named this area the Ashdown Forest and the Ouse valley as the villages to the north are dominated by the influence of the wilderness of the Ashdown Forest, and to the south the Ouse valley found near Lewes.

Smugglers and Dr Syn
This area is dominated by the Romney Marshes with their flat fertile landscapes. The Cinque Ports , smugglers and owlers were found here, with the book "Dr Syn the scarecrow" written by Russell Thorndyke giving a feel of the area.

Sevenoaks Weald
The area consists of old villages with many Elizabethan houses and Manors such as Hever and Penshurst, and a number of modern villages which provide housing for those people working in London , Sevenoaks , Maidstone , Tonbridge and Royal Tunbridge Wells .

Hastings can be found at the heart of 1066 country, and it is recorded that it was the nearest large settlement to the Battlefield at the current town of Battle . The Normans landed near here possibly at Bulverhythe before their march to Hooe Ninfield and finally Battle where they defeated King Harold on October 14th 1066.
