A 6.4km (4 mile) circular walk through the historic Deer Park at Buxted in East Sussex, crossing the River Uck, and completing a circuit of the Woodland Trust site at Views Wood. This walk is one of a collection published through a collaboration between iFootpath and East Sussex County Council.

The terrain is medium difficulty. You will need to negotiate several gates, kissing gates, footbridges and steps plus 3 stiles (some of which have tight fence surrounds – see gallery – so most dogs will need a lift over). There is one crossing of the A272 which needs care. You may be sharing some of the parkland with deer or other livestock. Allow 2 hours.

The walk starts and finishes at Buxted rail station, making it ideal to arrive by public transport. If you are coming by car, the station is located on the A272 and does have its own small pay and display car park. Approximate post code TN22 4LA. If this car park is full, there is some roadside parking further east along the A272 or on some of the residential side roads, but please remember to park with respect for the local residents.

Start point: 50.9899 lat, 0.1315 long
End point: 50.9861 lat, 0.1371 long

Starting from Buxted Railway Station, leave the car park heading towards the main road. Turn left and then immediately right into Framfield Road, follow the road for approximately 350m (380yds). Turn right at the next junction, signposted to Framfield, and follow the lane for a further 150m (165 yds) to reach a signposted path on your right.

Field Path to Railway Underpass

Start point: 50.9861 lat, 0.1371 long
End point: 50.9832 lat, 0.1279 long

Turn right onto the signposted footpath, and follow the field edge path, to a gap in the corner of the field and onwards along the fenced path. If you are lucky, deer can sometimes be seen in this area. At the next signpost, turn right to cross the stile, and head across the field in the direction indicated towards another stile. Cross the stile and continue ahead towards a white gate beside the railway.

Railway Underpass to Footbridge

Start point: 50.9832 lat, 0.1279 long
End point: 50.9813 lat, 0.123 long

Cross the stile beside the gate and follow the path under the railway, and continue along the well-defined path. Continue to follow the well walked path, leading down to the banks of the Tickerage Stream, and then along the bank of the stream to a wooden footbridge. From this point, there are some nice views of the Tickerage Stream, a tributary of the River Uck. This part of the walk affords views of woodland that has a carpet of bluebells in the spring.

Footbridge to Buxted Park View

Start point: 50.9813 lat, 0.123 long
End point: 50.9835 lat, 0.1188 long

From the footbridge, continue to follow the well-defined path to a deer-proof kissing gate, leading into Buxted Park. Continue ahead on the well-defined path heading towards the main Hotel Building in Buxted Park. You will cross two bridges. At this point, the route runs adjacent to the River Uck and a series of lakes. This point affords some of the best views of the main house.

Buxted Park View to Boardwalk

Start point: 50.9835 lat, 0.1188 long
End point: 50.9819 lat, 0.1119 long

After crossing two large bridges, turn left at the path junction, and follow the path ahead to another deer proof kissing gate. After the large kissing gate, turn right and follow the signposted path to a smaller wooden kissing gate. From this kissing gate, bear right and follow the path, initially along the edge of the field, and then continuing straight ahead on the well-defined path to reach another wooden gate. Continue ahead through the gate and then downhill to a long boardwalk crossing a marshy area.

Boardwalk to Uckfield Corner Junction

Start point: 50.9819 lat, 0.1119 long
End point: 50.9824 lat, 0.1046 long

Cross the boardwalk and then continue straight ahead, up the long steps, into Views Wood. Ignoring the first waymarked path at the foot of the steps, continue ahead, turning right at the next path junction. Continue to follow the signposted path on a circuit of the woods, much of this route is also marked by the alternative Woodland Trust markers. Views Wood is owned and managed by the Woodland Trust. Evidence can still be seen of the 1987 gales, with many of the mature fallen trees left to decay naturally.

After following the path downhill, continue up again, and bear right near the top of the hill, following the well-defined path behind the waymark post. Continue to follow the well-defined path, continue as signposted at the path junctions, and past a picnic area. After walking downhill, and crossing a small stream, look for the next path junction on the left. Turn left and continue to follow the path, crossing a small bridge, and towards the houses at the edge of Uckfield. Before reaching the houses, the path comes to a junction.

Start point: 50.9824 lat, 0.1046 long
End point: 50.9852 lat, 0.1134 long

At this point turn left, follow the path to another small bridge and on to reach another main path junction. Turn right at the junction, and follow the main woodland track, passing an area of newly planted woodland. At the next path junction, turn left. After a short distance, turn left again and follow the surfaced section of path ahead. At the next path junction, turn right, and continue to follow the surfaced path, looking for the next path junction just after passing a bench.

Turn left and follow the path heading downhill, bearing left near the bottom of the hill to reach another path junction. On reaching the bottom of the hill, turn left and after a short distance you will reach the end of the Views Wood loop. Retrace your steps across the boardwalk, and turn left on the far side to follow the other available path uphill, to reach a wooden gate. From the gate, continue ahead across the field heading towards another gate. Continue to follow the well-defined path after the gate, heading towards a further gate and then the drive behind Buxted Park Hotel.

Hotel Drive to A272
Hotel Drive to A272

Start point: 50.9852 lat, 0.1134 long
End point: 50.9896 lat, 0.1252 long

Continue to follow the Hotel drive, passing the Hotel itself, both the service entrance and the Grand entrance, heading towards the church. The area to your left near the church is the site of the original village of Buxted, which was relocated to its present site by 1836, under the park ownership of Lord Liverpool. On reaching the Church of St Margaret the Queen, turn right and follow the tarmac path through the churchyard. Turn right at the path junction within the churchyard, and leave by the wooden gate, leading back into the parkland.

Follow the path ahead, leading downhill, with views across the valley towards Buxted Village. This is another good location to enjoy the views towards Buxted, views of the hotel and the parkland. Before reaching the bottom of the hill, the path splits, at which point follow the path to the left to reach a junction with the main path. Turn left and follow the signposted path to a deer proof kissing gate and then on, to reach the main road.

A272 to End

Start point: 50.9896 lat, 0.1252 long
End point: 50.99 lat, 0.1315 long

On reaching the main A272, take care, and cross this busy section of road, before turning right to follow the roadside pavement uphill towards Buxted village. Continue to follow the pavement, under the railway bridge, to reach Buxted Station and the end of the walk.

Great location but needed a few more directions - got lost in the woods...

ADMIN RESPONSE: Remember to use the iFootpath App's live GPS map for navigation. This is really helpful in places like woodlands (where there aren't many landmarks to aid directions). The map shows your live location (a blue dot) on the route map (a red line) as you walk and will prevent any wrong turns.

jacquis: Yes we did use GPS map but not always a signal!

ADMIN RESPONSE: You don't need a phone signal to use the GPS function - we will contact you to make sure you have everything set up properly.
