Walked from Uckfield to Haywards Heath. For the most part this is an attractive route passing through hay meadows, cattle pastures, cereal fields and a section through the wild heathland of Chailey Common. It passes through the villages of Newick and Scaynes Hill with pubs, village stores and at Newick, the Cottage Bakery where splendid hot sausage rolls are served.
The route is well traced on the map.
The downsides include some sections where fingerposts are missing and there are some broken stiles. The worst section is about 1.5 miles from Uckfield between the A22 roundabout and a disused railway embankment where the path is clearly rarely used and very overgrown. We were wading through bracken, with some nettles and brambles.
The section through Chailey Common and some others were greatly aided by sat nav to keep in the right direction.
