    Ashdown Forest

    Jane Austen Illustrators: Chris Hammond

    The Hundred-Acre Wood A.A. Milne’s tales of Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends are set in Ashdown Forest, in Sussex, England — Milne even wrote in his autobiography that “Pooh’s forest and Ashdown Forest are identical.” Many locations in the stories exist in the forest, like Galleon’s Leap (actually known as Gill’s Lap), Eeyore's Gloomy Place, and Roo's Sandy Pit. I grew up here. ♥
