Heathfield

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  East Sussex  /  Heathfield
Heathfield is a small, affluent market town in East Sussex, England.LocationHeathfield lies near the junction of two main roads: the A267 between Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne; and the A265 from Hawkhurst. It is almost equidistant from Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne: approximately 16 mi (26 km).HistoryHistorically, Heathfield lay on an ancient trackway (The Ridgeway), connecting the South Downs with the Weald. Its market charter was granted in February 1316 during the reign of Edward II. The Wealden iron brought prosperity to the town during the 16th/17th centuries; the coming of the railway (the Cuckoo Line) in 1880 gave it another new lease of life. The latter was not a financial success and the branch line between Eridge and Polegate closed in 1968. The trackbed is now named the Cuckoo Trail, part of the National Cycle Network.The original village — Old Heathfield — is now only part of the town, which has expanded over time.CrimeThe crime rates in Heathfield were lower than the national average:
