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.

Walked from Lewes to Peacehaven. An absolutely glorious and peaceful walk along the west bank of the River Ouse to Piddinghoe, then up over the Downs past Halcombe Farm to Peacehaven.

The route is easy to follow, there are no stiles and just a couple of kissing gates to negotiate. There are no shops, pubs or facilities along the way.

I walked at the end of May, after a period of dry weather, consequently the lower path beside the river was dry. I do know that this path floods after periods of heavy rain and high tide (the river here is tidal). This leaves the path wet and muddy. The upper path along the levee bank is more overgrown.

A new cycle path called the Egrets Way has been laid below the levee bank for part of the route. This provides an easier surface to walk on.

Route follows the river Ouse for the majority and then follows a tarmacked bridleway over the hill into Peacehaven.
Was a bit muddy in places and probably vulnerable to flooding at high tide.

The start/end point in Peacehaven is probably in the wrong place too, suggest it needs to be a bit further west at the Meridian Centre.

There is a project to establish a surfaced cycle route between Lewes and Newhaven.. Pealew (and Lewnew) would be best following this if/when it ever gets finished!.
