Powdermill Wood is a varied, peaceful wood. It has ancient origins and once supplied charcoal to make gunpowder in nearby Battle. Today some timber harvesting takes place. The Powdermill Trust owns and conserves the wood for its interesting and varied wildlife and habitats. A large part of the reserve is alder-carr and a board walk traverses the swampy areas. A lot of the paths are unsurfaced or partially surfaced and accessible to wheelchairs and buggies
