19th Century Tourism

A visitor's guide published in the Hastings & St Leonards Observer during 1869 describes the area thus[3]:

Ecclesbourne.—A picturesque glen route (via East Hill to the Dripping Well)—a delightful ramble in dry weather.

Towards the upper end of the glen, there is a cave that was reportedly utilised by a hermit, later becoming occupied by a couple that had been evicted from the Workhouse.
