Ashdown Forest will feature in an episode of the BBC’s Countryfile television programme this weekend.

Presenters Matt Baker and Charlotte Smith have visited the forest, which inspired the Winnie-The-Pooh books, and spent a day exploring all it has to offer.

Matt went on a bear hunt with Winnie-the-Pooh fanatic and local museum creator Neil Reed to learn about the life of writer AA Milne and the forest's landmarks that feature in his stories.

Viewers can watch Charlotte go on a hunt for deer as she teams up with High Weald deer management co-ordinator Sandy Williamson 

Finally, Matt and Charlotte have a game of Pooh Sticks on the famous Pooh Sticks Bridge.

"We had so much to show them - after all, it is a great place to visit with so much on offer, whatever time of year."

The show is screening on Sunday at 6pm.
