A walk with Brian Phillips to celebrate the 800th anniversary of Uckfield’s documented history as a town.
On 6th August 2020, meeting at Bridge Cottage at 7pm.
On 6th August 1220: Uckfield’s market was licensed, producing entries in two documents: the earliest written record of our history.
This walk from Bridge Cottage includes the later cattle market (1889-1930) opposite, a flavour of the High Street of that period, the medieval town with possible sites for the original market, a relic of our rural surroundings and some of the newest shops on the way back.
Free, no need to book: donations towards Bridge Cottage welcome.
