Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Leg One of a walk from Uckfield to East Grinstead on 18th May 2022.

The route follows some narrow twittens out of Uckfield with some steps. Then a path through Shermanreed Wood which is fenced on both sides so easy to follow. The A26 is quite a busy road to cross, but as it is single lane in each direction it is not too much of a problem. Then heading towards Maresfield, the route goes past Mill House Farm. A field here had a herd of young cattle, quite frisky but they didn't block my way. That may not always be the case as the field isn't very big.

Heading out of Maresfield the route goes along the drive through Maresfield Park past lots of big houses and gardens. The speed limit on the Drive is 15mph and it is not busy. At the end of the Drive, the route heads along the B2026 for about 500m. This road is quite busy, but there is an adequate path/verge for pedestrians to walk along before taking the footpath on the left towards the hamlet of Cackle Street. The path here is again easy to follow, then there is a section along a quiet country lane.

The most problematic section was the last bit around Dodd Bank and Dodd's Hill. At this point you are into Ashdown Forest, where there are numerous paths, and the actual footpaths are not very well marked. I always seem to get lost in the Forest, but I blundered my way through to the final destination at Nutley Green. It wasn't an easy path to follow even with the Sat Nav. For this reason I have dropped a star, otherwise it was a nice walk which I followed without issues. Some stiles, gates, steps and footbridges to negotiate. It took me about an hour and a half.

Maresfield is at the half-way point at which there is the Chequers Inn, but I didn't come across a shop or any other facilities. Nutley has a pub now called Giggles and a small shop on the main road (A22) plus a petrol station.
