Take a look at the Ashdown Forest Conservators own Gill’s Lap walk, part of their walk is the same as the route we have been following for many years, the rest crosses the road, something we are reluctant to do. The link will take you to a printable leaflet which will be of particular interest to ‘Winnie the Pooh’ fans and which you might like to bring with you on our walk.
