Situated in rural East Sussex, Saints Wood is located at the end of a hard track and is part of a wider forested area known as Cow Field, lying 2 miles west of Crowborough and offers a real sense of tranquillity rarely found these days.

Sitting amid loamy clay soils, this mature woodland is attractively separated by a deep meandering stream with the western side enjoying far reaching rural views. This part of the copse comprises magnificent beech, oak and yew; the latter is known for its strong timber quality and historical importance - some live beyond 1000 years! Poplar, ash, sweet chestnut, Scots pine and occasional Lawson cypress also feature here. To the east of the wood is a canopy predominantly consisting of majestic Norway spruce, poplar and oak (some of which could be selected for fuel, using the existing Forestry Commission thinning licence) with a number of magnificent beech along parts of the steep banks of the stream.

Below, the lush shrub throughout is a lovely mixture of birch, colourful rhododendron, holly, young ash and sycamore, especially in the northeast. Embellishing the ground layer are patches of bluebell, foxglove, wood anemone and ferns, a delight during spring.

The eastern side is accessed along a path that leads down a few small steps where the gentle steam is crossed via a timber footbridge, giving a wonderful sense of adventure as one ascends to the other side of the woodland. Here you will also find a tributary to the stream. A few secluded level coves along the banks of the stream offer great spots for camping.

Woodland creatures such as roe deer, badger, fox and common pipistrelle bats have all been spotted taking shelter in this peaceful setting. A diversity of feathered visitors such as kestrel, yellowhammer, woodpecker and many musical songbirds enjoy the equanimity of this location.

Saints Wood benefits from good vehicular access navigable with a two-wheel drive vehicle.

If It Were Mine

A rope swing over the stream from one of the large beech trees is a must! Secluded overnighting locations are plentiful along the banks; I would certainly clear a couple of spots to facilitate this, perhaps with a BBQ area. A little fuel will be gathered too for the home hearth.
