This is a short but varied walk on the gentle southern slopes of the High Weald, starting and finishing at the village of Waldron, near Heathfield.
On this walk we head out from the top of the Devil’s Dyke Hill, for long a popular viewing point for urbanised coastal dwellers. Striking out west along the crest of the Downs we pass ancient burial sites and the mound on top of which sat a watchful Norman castle. We then head into valleys with isolated farm buildings and look down to the site of an abandoned village.
This week I can offer the second of a pair of linked linear walks between stations on the Hastings-to-Tunbridge Wells line, starting from Battle and finishing at Crowhurst where the previous walk, published a fortnight ago and available from the Argus website, began.
Cuckfield is the distinguished Mid Sussex community at the edge of the High Weald, it has a distinctive church spire, a fine High Street and a charming array of houses, narrow streets, twittens and footpaths. On this expedition we get out into the surrounding countryside, through woodland and pasture and finish up back in the High Street, ready for refreshment.
An attractive walk, starting along the quiet valley of the tiny Powdermill Stream with the option of a detour into the RSPB nature reserve at Fore Wood. It then climbs to higher ground, passing through Powdermill Wood and joining part of the long-distance 1066 Country Walk for the last mile or so.
Warninglid sits just a little more than a mile away from the busy A23 main road but the delightful, if short, village street could be many miles from the buzz of modern traffic. On this walk we head-off to the south and then traverse west, on a track we have used on earlier walks, passing through woodland and along hidden, flooded valleys that are evidence of the earlier Wealden iron industry.
