North pole and The Enchanted Place – a walk on Ashdown Forest

A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard Memorial Poohsticks Bridge

Having managed a short walk the day before, I decided to stretch my legs a little further over Ashdown Forest. On the list of places to visit were the North Pole, Eeyore’s Gloomy Place, Galleons Leap, The Enchanted Place, Sandypit and Poohsticks Bridge.

Ashdown Forest was created about 900 years ago as a hunting ground, and now comprises around 6500 acres of open access land (heathland and woodland) in East Sussex. It was the inspiration for the Winnie-the-Pooh stories by A.A. Milne.
