The Hurstwood affords another delightful stroll. Turning to the right by Fenner's Repository, you pass the old Baptist burying-ground, and Ashburnham House, and then proceed down a shady lane through some fields to the wood, which is the property of D. J. Robertson, Esq. It is tastefully laid out in walks, and seats are provided for the accommodation of visitors. To the right of the lane we have mentioned, there are Tea and Strawberry Gardens. The prospect from the fields here is very charming. as it comprises Speldhurst Church, the Swiss Cottage, and Culverden Tower, each of which forms a pleasing object.
