More About Pooh

July 24, 1994

"Bear Country," by Nancy Thompson (June 19), painted a faithful picture of a beautiful part of Southern England where my wife and I spent the first years of our married life--an area we frequently revisit. There is so much else close by that one could write pages on the subject. However, as she mentions the restored steam railway, the famous Blue Bell Line, she should also mention the superb National Trust Garden almost opposite, Sheffield Park. The town of Haywards Heath, on the main rail line to Brighton, is an equally good starting point for excursions, although Tunbridge Wells is more interesting.

I read the story about "Bear Country," about the Forest of Winnie-the-Pooh and how you can visit Poohsticks Bridge, Owl's house, Hundred Acre Wood and other enchanted places in East Sussex.

I am 13, and I considered "Winnie-the-Pooh" as a childhood memory (it's still my favorite book, although I'd rather not tell my whole school), but when I read the article, I could just imagine myself playing Poohsticks! My mother said we might go there someday (we are originally from Russia, lived in France, and that's where my grandmother lives, so we often go to Europe). With your description, I can't wait to go.
