| Events in Ticehurst | 10 Places to Stay

Ticehurst village is located mid-way between Wadhurst and Hawkhurst along the B2099, close to the Kent border and just south of Bewl Water. The name probably derives from the Old English "ticcenes-hyrst" meaning "kids or goats wood". The lands were under control of Hastings Priory from around 1197 although the first written record dates from 1018 when King Cnut gave the area to the Archbishop of Canterbury. The village has a number of fine old buildings; St Mary`s church is mostly 14th century the west tower has a embattled stair-turret and a short broach spire, inside there are remnants of some 14th C glass work, there is also a interesting collection of hand embroided kneeling bolsters showing village life and other local subjects. Ticehurst House has a Victorian frontage behind which is an early 19th C house, it was here that Dr Newington started his home for those suffering from physiactric problems. A little to the east is Pashley Manor, first built in 1292 by the de Passele`s it was brought by the Bullen family in 1453, better known as Boleyn, who`s daughter Anne married Henry VIII. After Anne was executed in 1536 the family fell from grace and the house was sold to Sir Thomas May who held it for only two years until the Dissolution in 1538 when it were given to Sir John Baker of Sissinghurst. Henry being Henry then changed his mind and gave the land to the Dean & Chapter of Canterbury Cathedral who held it until the mid 1930`s. The manor has an early 17th C facade with exposed timber-framing, at the back can be seen some early 18th C brickwork and the award winning Gardens. Ticehurst makes an ideal base from which to explore the High Weald, the long distance Sussex Border Path passes nearby and to the north is Bewl Water one of the largest stretches of inland water in Sussex.
