Take a step back in time to the days of Winnie the Pooh and Tiger too. The famous children’s author of the Winnie the Pooh stories, A.A. Milne, lived in a house in Hartfield, close to Ashdown Forest. When his son, Christopher was a child, they would visit the rickety old bridge in Ashdown Forest and played a game they called “Poohsticks”. The bridge became infamous in the tales of Christopher Robin and families now flock to the little bridge to play their own game of Poohsticks.

Having read the books and watched the films, once your there you can feel the stories coming back to life, but this time your part of it. It's such a lovely place to visit. - Anne Jacks
   
This is a lovely little spot in the woods at the end a pretty country lane. I have played Pooh Sticks here with little ones many times, and they always have fun.

Watch out for horses – the path over the bridge is also a popular bridle path to Ashdown Forest, and horses tend to rush across it. If you’re walking, you can reach the forest – where Winnie the Pooh and his friends lived – in about five minutes from here. Just keep walking up the hill. Note that the path gets very muddy in winter.

Had a lovely Sunday walk last week in mid October down to Pooh Bridge for a race with many other families who had also collected their sticks en route. The walk has numerous sitting spots for you to just enjoy the scenery and a lovely cup of tea and scrummy cake can be partaken at the cafe in the tiny High Street just a short drive away - a smashing family outing for all. - Tracy Newman
