A book and photographic record of Ashdown Forest through the seasons
By Craig Payne
Filled with over 100 beautiful photographs of Ashdown Forest by local photographer, Craig Payne, “Ashdown Forest: Through the Seasons” is now available to collect from the Ashdown Forest Centre.
Craig’s dream to document Ashdown Forest through photography became a reality during Covid.
He explains “As we entered the first Lockdown and my couples postponed their weddings I began to explore Ashdown Forest more and more. A dream of documenting the landscape throughout the year began to become more of a reality and fast forward 2 years the result is a series of limited edition prints and a soon to be produced book!
Ashdown inspired the stories of Winnie-the-Pooh, it is the home to rare heathland specialist species and provides an escape to so many during these uncertain times. It stands as a place we can visit with friends, somewhere we can loose ourselves in and a beautiful space where we can admire the beauty of nature. As a wilderness it embraces the harshest of Winter storms and the warmest of Summer days and this project looks at everything we love about it.”
