Brede High Woods


Brede High Woods is the Trust’s largest ancient woodland, six miles north of Hastings in the High Weald National Landscape. 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.
