Driving the High Weald
Let this book inspire and guide you as you drive around the highways and country lanes of the beautiful High Weald.
There’s so much history to celebrate in the castles and abbeys, the towns and villages and these five suggested routes, visiting Bodiam Castle, Sissinghurst Castle, Scotney Castle, Batemans and Battle Abbey, will help you to discover the best that this corner of Kent and Sussex has to offer.
The High Weald is an altogether softer countryside of rolling hills, rivers, woods and hedgerows; of ridges and valleys and a patchwork of smaller fields. Farms and oasthouses scatter the view from almost every vantage point and all are connected by ancient roads, Roman roads and sunken lanes.
There is a natural beauty to the High Weald, that has been enhanced though conservation and history, and by ‘Driving the High Weald’ on Three Castles and an Ironmaster’s House, you can experience this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) at first hand.
