This is a gentle walk over a mix of fields and woods from a quiet station on the quiet Uckfield Line in East Sussex.
It heads north for lunch at the rural Crow and Gate pub at Poundgate. It tends to get very busy on Sundays. If walking with a larger group it is best to make a reservation, or avoid Sundays during winter, when dining outside is not an option.
There are views of the distant South Downs ridge for most of the walk
At the end, there is choice of 2 pubs for a drink
Trains go from London Bridge and Victoria to Buxted, journey time just over an hour.
