Pooh Sticks Bridge, Ashdown Forest
The sport of pooh sticks was possibly first developed at this bridge over a tributary of the River Medway. The bridge was built in 1907 and originally called Posingford Bridge. It is considered to be the bridge on which A. A. Milne and his son Christopher Robin first played the game which subsequently featured in the book The House at Pooh Corner. For more information on the game of pooh sticks and Pooh Sticks Bridge see LinkExternal link The sheer number of visitors necessitated the bridge having to be rebuilt which took place in 1999.
