Moving to Herstmonceux East Sussex?
Herstmonceux is a village and civil parish in the Wealden District of East Sussex. The parish includes Herstmonceux Castle, the village of Cowbeech and a number of surrounding hamlets.
Herstmonceux Castle is 2 miles south-east of the main village and is a former site of the Royal Greenwich Observatory. Bader International Study Centre of Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada have made it their home and the area has an annual influx of Canadian and other international students each school year as a consequence. The castle grounds are also home to the Observatory Science Centre operated by Science Projects Limited, and also hosts the Herstmonceux Mediaeval Festival. Buckwell Place was the seat of the Hare family.
There are two Sites of Special Scientific Interest within the Parish. Herstmonceux Park is of importance because of its wetland habitat and fen vegetation. It is the only known location of Milk Parsley (Peucedanum palustre) in the south-east. The second site, Pevensey Levels, lies partially in the parish. The site is of biological interest consisting of low-lying grazing meadows, hosting a wide variety of wetland flora and fauna.
The Herstmonceux area is famous for the making of trugs – baskets made from split willow boards set in an ash or chestnut frame. A number of local people continue this tradition. There are also a number of local B&Bs which provide lodgings for tourists staying in the area due to its rural nature but close proximity to London, Brighton and other coastal towns and cities.
