General Details

Colemans Hatch Sussex - Holy Trinity church
Colemans Hatch lies on the north edge of the Ashdown Forest a small collection of houses and the church which was built in the early 1900's.

From the 1200's the Ashdown Forest was the Kings deer and wild boar hunting park, the King would have stayed at nearby Forest Row where the King's hunting lodges were built to accomodate the hunting parties.

King Edward III was one of those Monarchs who enjoyed the hunting, together with his son would have passed through Coleman's Hatch into the forest.

The area would have been a farming and shepherding area on the edge of the forest, and was an entrance to Ashdown Forest for many centuries.


Colemans Hatch East Sussex - The village
Colemans Hatch has no services to speak of apart from the church and a nice public house.

The main shopping town is East Grinstead a few miles to the north west. The main trains to London can also be caught here.


Colemans Hatch East Sussex - The pub
The church is quite pretty and the views north towards Holtye are fine.

Other good views are into the Forest, and at the bottom of the hill is a small ford, which can be driven through.
