Pass Wood, is quite unlike the neighbouring woodlands. It is triangular, and the longest side, along the edge of the track from which you approach it, has a fine stand of Corsican pine., These trees grow faster than Scots pine, and will eventually lead to a fine crop of timber. There is a good 'vehicle wide' track to give good access within Pass Wood.The other long side of the triangle abuts a small local single railway line connecting Uckfield with London by an infrequent train service. The railway line is of course behind a good fence, and results in there being a clearing, admitting light from the east to flood the forest floor.
In time gone by a grassy track, now totally obsolete, ran from end to end of Pass Wood, and is now a quite special place for spotting wild flowers and butterflies. Some birch trees have also taken root here, relieving the dark greenery of the pines. It would be a great place for picnics and camping. At the south end of the clearing, a small stream briefly crosses the land, attracting larger wildlife. Pass Wood is at the very end of the stoned track serving other woodlands, so Pass Wood is particularly private.
Pass Wood is part of a larger woodland area in the High Weald and is described by Prof. Julian Evans, in “ Limekiln and Park Woods”.
The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.

• After about 5 miles, immediately after a 30mph sign, turn left at the sign for Boarshead. (If you pass a garage on your left you have gone too far).
• You are now in Boarshead Lane. Almost immediately turn right, go past the Boarshead Inn and go along the narrow, winding lane for about 1 mile.
You will get to a‘Woodlands for Sale’ sign, by a single bar metal gate on the right. (This is to a public byway, but only open to authorised traffic, including the owner of Pass Wood)

• Walk up this byway for 230 meters to a single bar dark green metal gate on your left.
• Turn left here going around the gate onto a track and walk about 400 meters. You will reach a cross road, go straight across and walk a further 150 meters downhill and Pass Wood will then be on your left.
