Haywards Heath to Crawley via Cuckfield 29/10/2021 Leg One - CUCHAY Two

This is a route which is justifiably already snailed. It’s a direct all-weather path with some nice views and mostly traffic-free.

The route links Cuckfield to Haywards Heath with the majority of the route on pavements on averagely busy roads. From Cuckfield, the walk goes through a churchyard through a gate and along a slightly gravelly private road. The route through Blunts Wood is on a tarmac path with streetlights. This section is particularly attractive with pleasant view of the meadows to the south and woods to the north.

This is a better route than Cuchay one. The route is more direct yet still mostly off main roads.

This route is easier to follow than Cuchay 2. Mainly on quite roads with short sections of footpaths. Excellent route between these two locations. The path through Blunts Wood has a few street lamps but can be dark at night.

Going by bike along this route is faster than taking a car.

    The route through Blunts Wood/Paige's Wood is a Bridleway.
