Rushlake Green is a small village in the civil parish of Warbleton in the Wealden district of East Sussex, England. Rushlake Green is situated on the slopes of the Weald between Heathfield 4 miles (6.4 km) north-west, Battle 9 miles (14 km) south-west and Hailsham 7 miles (11 km) south.

History[edit]

The name Rushlake Green is probably derived from the Norman rische lac meaning a lake or stream surrounded by rushes,[1] in which there is a lake just to the west of the village.

Wealden iron was mined here and at nearby Warbleton in the 16th and 17th centuries.[2]

Earliest records of the village date back to the 16th century although the Horse and Groom pub[3] and other cottages were built in the 17th century
