I’m always surprised by how much history I discover hidden away in our villages.

It’s good to talk to people as they recommend other people with local knowledge.

Here are seven villages, each with a tale to tell.

1)  Buxted. There are some very well-known names connected with Buxted. https://unknownkentandsussex.co.uk/buxted-east-sussex/

2)  Hartfield. Of course, Hartfield is known for Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin. but the village is far older than that.

3)  East Hoathly. Famous around East Sussex for its Bonfire Night, it’s a very friendly village. https://unknownkentandsussex.co.uk/east-hoathly-a-sussex-village-with-lots-to-discover/
