Gorse and dead bracken on Ashdown Forest
Gorse and dead bracken on 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.

Although this was November the gorse was still flowering 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.
