is a small rural village situated within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. During the 15th century the area became rich from the iron industry supplying the forges and furnaces in the area. When the iron industry in the south east collapsed during the 1800s, the village returned to its rural roots. In the early 19th century Buxted moved from private park land to a new settlement next to the railway line where the village stands today.
