This is a walk through fields from the popular Anchor Inn to Barcombe Mills along the River Ouse and back again along the opposite bank. Barcome Mills is a popular picnic site and it is possible to swim there.
The Anchor Inn provides meals and its large car park can be utilized for this walk. The beer is fine, the location is excellent but the food is not great; better to have a picnic. Walk downriver along a flat path as far as Barcombe Mills, a popular picnic and fishing site ever since the station opened on the Lewes - Uckfield line, now long-since closed.
There were two mills along the river and the remains of these can be seen in the form of discarded mill wheels. There are also a number of wartime pill-boxes. You pass over the first tollbridge in Sussex (1066).
