Descriptive Gazetteer Entry for FOREST-RIDGE

FOREST-RIDGE, an elevated tract in Sussex; extending from Horsham to Hastings. It takes the second part of its name from its own configuration, and the first part from an ancient forest which once covered it all, and which has left remains in the forests of Ashdown, St. Leonard, Tilgate, and Worth. It consists mainly of sandstone; it anciently had ironworks; and it presents more picturesque scenery than most other parts of Sussex.

(John Marius Wilson, Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales (1870-72))
