History of Wealden

Wealden District lies within the Weald and includes two landscape areas – the High Weald and the Low Weald.  Weald is derived from Old English and means forest. In the Anglo Saxon period, the area had the name Andredes Weald, meaning the forest of Andred, the latter derived from Anderida which is the Roman name of present day Pevensey.

Located in the South of England, Wealden stretches 35 miles from north to south and includes the iconic Seven Sisters coastline, the South Downs National Park and the High Weald area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Attractive villages offer you a warm welcome where you will see flint, timber and thatched buildings which reflect the heritage of the local area.

In addition, you will find a wide choice of accommodation from country houses to unique B&Bs and country pubs. Whether it is sailing, rock climbing, golfing, visiting historic houses and gardens, walking, cycling, bird watching, beachcombing or just enjoying a ploughmans lunch or cream tea, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
