Davies White worked with the children, parents and Parish Council in the small rural village of Hartfield, East Sussex to design and create a new play space on the Village Croft
1924 the village saw its main claim to fame arrive in the guise of the Milne family who bought Cotchford Farm. A small bridge was built over the stream at the end of their land in 1925. A young Christopher Robin Milne visited the shops in the village with his nanny in the 1920's, his father A.A.Milne wrote the Winnie-the-Pooh stories which incorporated the young Christopher. The area near Hartfield is also included in his books, with the bridge on the farm being the place where Poohsticks were invented. The bridge can still be visited as it was restored by East Sussex County Council in 1979 the bridge lies to the south of the village.
Clear brief for the new play area was presented to Davies White and they then developed design proposals whilst engaging the children from the local primary school. Key features include an insect magnifying glass, seating made from an old Cherry Tree, a fallen tree (on top of Owls House), new swings, slide and toddler play train.
