Friston Forest (Side Hill Field)
Friston Forest (Side Hill Field)
Originally planted mainly with beech in 1927 by the Eastbourne Water company to protect its water supplies underground from despoilation by fertilisers and cattle the forest is now a large nature reserve and open public area. The flint wall is a remnant of pre forest days and split apart fields owned by Westdean Farm/Manor on this side and Exceat Farm on the other. That field was originally known as Sidehill Field according to Westdean's 1840 tithe map and unlike other areas of the forest wasn't planted until after the Second World War. The post and low gap in the wall mark out a cycle trail.
