Ashdown Forest

Ashdown Forest is the largest area of open access land in the South East. A former royal hunting preserve, it is more open heathland than it is wooded. Because it’s so big, it’s a great place to go and wander and explore without restrictions. I parked in the parking area opposite Wren’s Warren and went for an adventure that involved crawling through tunnels beneath the gorse and a particularly enjoyable fight through the undergrowth to follow a stream towards the end. The photo of the fly agaric is out of focus, I realise, but I’ve included it because they’re by far the best-looking of the toadstools.
