The Ashdown Forest Centre acts the office for the Conservators of Ashdown Forest and as an information point for residents and visitors. The Information Barn usually has an interesting exhibition on display and these can include works by local artists and photographers, crafts people and local historical societies. There are often interesting and unusual events taking place. Check the events page for the latest news.
The Ashdown Forest Research Group recently carried out research for the Conservators into the origins of the barns which house the Ashdown Forest Centre. Click here to find out what was discovered.
Hiring the Education Barn
We have a lovely rustic barn, used by the Board for meetings and as an education area, which seats approx 40 persons. It is suitable for meetings, small conferences and private parties. There is a basic kitchen which can be used for serving hot drinks or pre-prepared food. If you are interested in holding an event please call or email the office to ensure the barn is available for you. Price on application.
