Waller's Haven
Waller's Haven
This section which starts at Dowle Corner was originally constructed in the early medieval period, possibly the 10th to 11th centuries, and was known as Mark Dyke, though it was not the main drain as that followed the course of hat is now Old Haven down to Pevensey Bridge. In 1402 the course of Waller's Haven which also converged onto other water courses at Dowle Corner was diverted down this section of Mark Dyke to help scour the inlet near the port of Coding or Godyngshaven which once lay near Normans Bay. Since that point this became the main drain for the eastern side of Pevensey Levels and was extended again in 1455 to the Star Inn by which point Waller's Haven had generally become the name of the entire stretch of water from Boreham Bridge southwards. Looking southwards Rockhouse Bank Farm can just be seen in the distance.
