Downstream Wood  is semi-natural ancient woodland, and set within the High Weald  Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is a wide variety of trees including, mature oak, ash, cherry, chestnut, alder, holly, rowan, hawthorn, hazel, as well as Norway spruce. The ground flora is enhanced by the wet flushes and the stream which flows through the southern part of the wood. There are plenty of wildflowers including bluebells, wood anemones, cuckooflower and marsh marigold. There are also two large areas with newly planted seedlings, including oak.

The woodland has a management plan implemented by English Woodlands. The current owners made the woodland available to Plumpton College for their tree felling and chainsaw courses. They managed the wood by felling small pines close to deciduous trees. They also built sweet chestnut timber pedestrian bridges across the stream. 

District is Wealden District Council

Boundaries are indicated by a deer fence on the northern side and the shared woodland track to the east. The western boundary to the north is the woodlands own stream and western boundary to the south is farmland and an open field.

Access There is a hard track leading from the main gate on Pound Lane of which the owner will have vehicle rights. There is space to park and also a turning circle at the end.
