Exciting discoveries at Old Lodge, Ashdown Forest, West Sussex.


An archaeological survey of Old Lodge Nature Reserve was carried out during 2010 by CBAS, together with Vivienne Blandford and Anne Locke, for Sussex Wildlife Trust to review the Historic Environment Resource and provide Conservation and Management recommendations for the Old Lodge Nature Reserve Higher Level Stewardship Agreement coordinated by Natural England.


Prior to the survey, there were only five archaeological sites recorded on the ESHER within the Old Lodge Nature Reserve. A combination of desk-top study and groundbreaking work using Lidar and ground-truthing field survey identified a further 62 sites, including banks, pillow mounds, ridge and furrow ploughing and military sites.
