Hurst Green is a village and civil parish in the Rother District of East Sussex, England.

The village is located on the A21 road, halfway between Tunbridge Wells, Kent, in the north and Hastings in the south, approx thirteen miles (20 km) each way.[2]

There is one active church in the village: the brick-built Church of England parish church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity. The Roman Catholic church of Our Lady Help of Christians is now disused and there are plans to convert the building into a community shop.[3] The local primary school is Hurst Green CE Primary School.[4]

Hurst Green is twinned with the village of Ellerhoop nr. Hamburg in Schleswig Holstein, Germany.[5]

The settlements of Silver Hill and Swiftsden are also located within the parish.

Village organisations[edit]

The Hurst Green Short Mat Bowls Club gives villagers, both young and more mature, the opportunity to play short mat bowls for fun, and competitively.
