Uckfield Walks

17 miles (27.5 km)

The East Sussex based town of Uckfield has some fine walking trails to follow into the lovely countryside of the High Weald AONB. This long circular walk makes use of the Wealdway and Vanguard Way long distance footpaths to take you on a tour of the countryside, woodland and hills surrounding the town. You'll enjoy fine views from the high points and also pass through a section of the expansive Ashdown Forest. The town is accessible by public transport on the Oxted Linewhich runs to Uckfield Railway Station.
The walk starts on the Wealdway which runs just past the eastern edge of the town. Follow the path north through Buxted Park to Furnace Wood before climbing to Camp Hill which stands at a height of nearly 200 metres. Shortly after you come to the Vanguard Way in Ashdown Forest which you can follow south east toward Poundgate.
The trail takes you past Newnham Park Wood to High Hurstwood before passing Buxted and Etchingwood. Soon after you come to the Wealdway which you can follow west back into Uckfield.
To extend the walk you could continue north into Ashdown Forest to visit Five Hundred Acre Wood. Hundred Acre Wood in the Winnie the Pooh stories is based on this area.
