The charming remnants of Old Heathfield, the original village, can still be found in this settlement located between Eastbourne and Tunbridge Wells, off the A267. In the present day, the older part has been joined to the modern development, which hosts an array of shops, restaurants and takeaways and several churches. A market charter was given to the town by Edward II in 1316 and the iron industry later helped prosper the residents. Like other villages, Heathfield was connected to the railway network, which closed in 1968. Noteworthy homes nearby include the modern/medieval Braylsham Castle and Heathfield Park mansion. Villagers are fully integrated into the social aspects of life in Heathfield and community events include the annual Heathfield show, Heffle Cuckoo Fair and a French Market each August. The fourth Doctor Who actor, Tom Baker, resides in the village as well as ice skating star Jayne Torvill.
Heathfield is fortunate to host an annual fair each year, as noted above, with the Heffle Cuckoo Fair particularly drawing interest every April. Heffle is the former ancient name for Heathfield. The cuckoo part relates to a cuckoo bird (sometimes suspiciously looking rather like a pigeon) released from a basket by ‘Dame Heffle’ as part of tradition. History records that the event began when the Bishop of Chichester gained permission for the event, starting in 1315. Nowadays there is a funfair, music, a parade and falconry alongside other attractions. Another townwide fair, each May, is the official Heathfield Show. Other public events include a French market (Le Marche) each August Bank Holiday.
