Village Greens

Bike Ride 2007 Foresters Green

We have two main areas of Village Greens, both on Hartfield Road. These are Forester’s Green and Rush Green. Other areas, officially registered as village green are the deep verges on the A22. Registered Village Greens are protected by law and have strict limitations on what they can be used for.

We also have several areas of amenity land – one of the main areas being at the rear of Forester’s Green where the Youth Club used to be. This is the area that we are looking at for developing future youth facilities.

The Council also maintains land in:

  • Lower Road (Trimmer’s Green)
  • Stonepark Drive (Forest Row Canal)
  • Forester’s Link
  • Riverside
  • Doctor’s Hill
  • Gilham Bank (the wooded area)
  • Park Crescent (under licence from East Sussex County Council)
  • Wall Hill triangle (under licence from East Sussex County Council)

We also own Newlands Place and some years ago completely redeveloped the area, making it the attractive space it is now.

Foresters Link


This path connects the centre of the village to the Forest Way. It was a muddy track until the Parish Council widened it and had a surface put down that made it accessible to all sectors of the community. This was done in partnership with East Sussex County Council and Forester's Link is now a well used thoroughfare. The Parish Council manages it by layering the mature hedge, planting several hundred hedge saplings to create a new border and has installed bat boxes in the trees.

At the apex of the 'Link' is a sculpture created from a felled oak elsewhere in the village. This was created with help Wealden District Council in the form of a grant towards it.
