View from Camp Hill Clump, Ashdown Forest
Ashdown Forest is a former medieval hunting forest, and is the highest ridge of the High Weald. At ten square miles it is the largest open access area in the South East. Ashdown Forest was purchased by East Sussex County Council from the De La Warr family in 1988. It is now managed by a Board of Conservators. Nearly two thirds of it is heathland.

This view is looking north from Camp Hill Clump. Although it was December the gorse was flowering profusely but then gorse flowers virtually the whole year, hence the saying "When gorse is out of bloom, kissing is out of season". Gorse is a typical plant of heathland and acid soils.
