Deanland Wood Park

Welcome from the Sargeant family.

A little about the park!

Deanland Wood Park is a nationally renowned and award winning park home estate with over 400 homes, positioned very near to the beautiful Ashdown Forest

 Set in the picturesque Sussex countryside, It is easy to tell as soon as you come onto the park why it is one of the most sought after park home estates in the country.

Deanland Wood is restricted to people without children or dogs, and is aimed at the “active retired”. It therefore follows that everyone has but one aim, to enjoy their retirement. Visiting family are welcomed, and the Park has much to offer them.

Steeped in World War Two History!

RAF Deanland, as it was known in 1943–44, played an important part in the Second World War.
As an ALG (Advanced Landing Ground), of which the Park was an integral part, it was a temporary airfield that hosted a Spitfire squadron with a record of some exceptional successes. For instance, it played a large part in the battle with the V1 rocket or "Doodlebug" as it was known.
Deanland was right under the flight path of these death machines that were aimed at London. The third highest scorers in the fighter squadrons were those stationed at Deanland with their Spitfires scoring 185 kills.
Deanland is also reputed to be the first Spitfire squadron to give air cover to the D-Day landings in Normandy. The present main car park and some of the roads on the park were first used by the RAF in 1943.
We are proud of this history and the role the Park played in World War Two.
