MJRW12345 — 29 May 2021

A very pleasant, almost completely off road walk that follows the River Uck and the River Ouse. I walked from Uckfield to Lewes in just over 3 hours (I walk quite fast though!) - it is a long walk with no hills of note.

A few issues to highlight on the route:
1. There's a new housing development being built on the route on the edge of Uckfield so the path has been diverted, probably permanently. This diversion is shown on OpenStreetMap but not the OS Map.
2. The route passes through the newly created Horsted Green Park which also is not shown on OS Maps but has very well made and signed paths (and a water fountain!).
3. Around Isfield the waymarking of most of the paths is poor and in wet weather I'd imagine the paths will be very muddy in places.

Defintely not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs and likely to be difficult to use in the winter.
