1886ReflectionsGreenwood GateField and Hedgerow
'Here and there a house stands, as it seems, alone in the world on the Forest Ridge, thousands of acres of heather around, the deep weald underneath - as at Duddleswell, a look-out, as it were, over the earth. Forest Row, where they say the courtiers had their booths in ancient days; Forest Fold, Boar's-head Street, Greenwood Gate - all have a forest sound; and what prettier name could there be than Sweet-Haws? Greybirchet Wood again; Mossbarn, Highbroom, and so on. Outlying woods in every direction are fragments of the forest, you cannot get away from it; and look over whatever gate you will, there is always a view.'
extract from Buckhurst Park written by Richard Jefferies in 1886
