Nothing says spring in England like a big blanket of bluebells, and Brede High Woods is one of the most idyllic places to walk dogs amongst them. Home to rare wildlife, plants, flowers and long-forgotten iron works, this is a varied walk that’s perfect for a crisp, sunny day. Not only does the five-mile path take you through ancient woodland, but past sandy heaths in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Dog walking code of conduct
Please keep your dog in sight, under control and where signposted, on a lead.
Keep your dog on a short lead in areas with livestock and ground-nesting birds, particularly during nesting season (usually March-July).
Ensure your dog is trained in basic recall. If not, please keep them on a lead at all times.
Stick to paths when walking your dog to protect precious ground flora and tree roots.
Clear up after your dog and take any waste home with you if you can't find a bin.
Be respectful of other wood users, including other dogs. If the dog approaching is on a lead, put yours on a lead too.
If the weather's warm, please provide your dog with water if you are planning a long walk.
