Friston Forest (Charleston Laine)
Friston Forest (Charleston Laine)
The forest was planted mainly with beech in 1927 by the Eastbourne Water Company to protect their water supply from pollution by fertilisers and cattle. This section between Litlington Road and the current South Downs Way and to the immediate south of Charleston Manor was once an open field called Charleston Laine according to Westdean's 1840 tithe map. The forest these days is open to the public and contains a myraid of open trails for walkers and cyclists though horse riders need a permit to ride on routes that are not public bridleways.
