Play Pooh sticks in Ashdown Forest
Hartfield, East Sussex
Take a walk through the magical wood where Christopher Robin, Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Tigger and Eeyore roam.
Go on one of Pooh’s ‘expotitions,’ (silly old bear!) to Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, for a bit of friendly competition on Poohsticks Bridge.
Bring your own sticks so as not to damage the surrounding woodland. Drop your sticks at the same time on the upstream side of the bridge (a referee is a good idea). Then, run to the other side to see whose stick came first!
A walking trail will take you to many of Christopher Robin’s and Pooh’s other well-known haunts in the rolling, high weald forest known to both characters as the Hundred Acre Wood where, "in that enchanted place on the top of the forest a little boy and his bear will always be playing".
