Hartfield and the Pooh Circular Walk


A circular walk around Ashdown Forest, starting at the delightful village of Hartfield and taking in many of the places associated with the Winnie the Pooh books, including Pooh Bridge.

I like The Ashdown Forest in bad weather; cold, wet and windy is when it is at its best. Although, as this is the civilized South East, bad weather rarely reaches more than inconvenience levels, except for one night back in '87 when the hurricane struck and changed the face of Sussex woodlands overnight.

This walk starts at the pleasant village of Hartfield where there are two pubs, The Anchor and The Hay Wagon, both of which sell decent food. It follows the Wealdland Way for a time and visits many of the places mentioned in the two Winnie the Pooh books by A A Milne, culminating in a crossing of the famous Pooh Bridge. 

Larger parties may like to start at Gills Lap car park (Waymark 10), as parking within Hartfield is limited.

Walk no 4664 is a shorter alternative for younger walkers, which also takes in Pooh's favourite places.
