Brede High Woods


Brede High Woods is the Trust’s largest ancient woodland, six miles north of Hastings in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s full of history and there’s some incredible and rare wildlife. No wonder it has become a magnet for professional naturalists as well as ordinary visitors enjoying the inspiring landscapes.
Visitors to Brede have said it’s like walking through 10 different woods on one site. It’s special for its rare green hellebores and wild service trees, but also for hobby, woodcock, nightingales and buzzards, glowworms, great crested newts, lampreys, dormouse, badgers and fallow deer.


Map & Directions

Road Directions

The B2089 Broad Oak to Cripps Corner road runs along the northern edge of Brede, and there’s a car park behind the roadside lay-by. Surrounding lanes have other entrances. Paths can get waterlogged and some are very rutted, and it’s a moderate hill down to Powdermill Reservoir.

Public Transport Directions

Buses stop at Cripps Corner, 400m from one entrance.
