Wealdway- Buxted to Berwick

Jane Rosoux reports...

I attach photographs taken on my walk along the Wealdway from Buxted to Berwick Station on Saturday, 4th June.

There were 10 in the party at the start (plus a dog)...

and we were fortunate to have good weather for the walk - and dry conditions underfoot - because it ended up as 22.3 miles instead of the intended 20 miles as a result of a combination of navigational errors and footpath diversions.

We were somewhat behind schedule by the time we stopped for lunch at the 'Kings Head', East Hoathly at around 1.50 pm, where one member of the party dropped out, speeded up to some extent between there and Horesbridge Mill (on the northern edge of Hailsham), where a further three participants dropped out, and really pushed up the pace thereafter to arrive at Berwick Station at 7.05 pm.

Despite the distance it was an enjoyable day over gently undulating terrain with attractive villages, good views and mostly good paths.


  1. It looks like you've made a mistake in the title, writing 'Buxton' instead of 'Buxted.'

    Buxton is in the Peak District where I go walking.

  2. Thanks for the correction Lee,
    Well spotted.
