About Ticehurst

For a village worthy of a picture postcard, Ticehurst would be hard to beat. It is all enchanting white weatherboarded cottages hidden beneath russet tiles interspersed around a pleasant square with a church, and it's favoured position in a valley close to the River Limden and Bewl Water give it that dream-like quality peculiar only to ancient English villages.

The history of the place goes back over many centuries, in 1968 Roman Ironworks were found in nearby Holbeam Wood. In latter days there are legends of smuggling in the village and the village pond is said to have been a hiding place for kegs of Brandy. Looking around, none was to be found when I visited! The village church dedicated to St. Mary, dates 14th-century. The church shows an interesting Iron tombstone commemorating the May family. Iron, rather than stone was much used for this purpose when the Wealden iron industry was at it's height 300 years or so ago. There is also a fine 'Doom' window of medieval glass.

Interestingly, of the other buildings in the area Dunsters Mill, which dates 15th-century was taken down and moved from it's original site to it's present ground at the side of Bewl Water. This house can be easily spotted from a walk which leads through the quiet countryside and along the river banks to Bewl Bridge where you will find a visitors cantre and nature reserve.

In the beautiful countryside you will find several pleasant picnic spots and pleasant welcoming inns and public houses. Places of interest include; Scotney Castle and Batemans, both owned by the NT, with the beautiful gardens of Marle Place being a short drive away.
