Friends' Clump, Ashdown Forest
Friends' 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 clump of Scots pines were first ordered to be planted here in 1825 by Elizabeth, Countess de la Warr. At the time local people were outraged by this and many of the trees were cut down. However, in 1973 The Friends of Ashdown Forest decided to commemorate the "Year of the Tree" by planting the Friends' Clump. They provide a good waymark for walkers.
