Walk no: 18
Length: 6 miles
A 6 mile linear walk from Uckfield bus station to the North Chailey bus stop in East Sussex, forming the 18th stretch of the Sussex Hospices Trail. The route takes you from the busy edge of Uckfield into some surprisingly lovely, tranquil countryside. On route you will skirt through woodland, cross several streams and walk south of Newick village. The return leg can be completed with a single 20 minute bus journey (Mon-Sat).
The paths are generally firm but after rain a few parts could be muddy. You will need to negotiate a number of stiles, kissing gates and footbridges. There is a short, fascinating section through Bellbrook Business Park at the beginning of the walk and the walk ends with a pavement walk along Station Road to North Chailey. For most of the walk you are in gently rolling open countryside. You will be sharing several of the fields with grazing livestock (including cattle, goats and donkeys), so take particular care with dogs. There are several road crossings that need care. Allow 3 hours.
