River Cuckmere
The River Cuckmere rises near Heathfield in East Sussex, England on the southern slopes of the Weald. The name of the river probably comes from an Old English word meaning fast-flowing. After crossing the Low Weald area, the Cuckmere creates a gap through the South Downs ( LinkExternal link ). It reaches the English Channel at Cuckmere Haven ( LinkExternal link ) east of Seaford near the Seven Sisters ( LinkExternal link ). The lower part of its course is marked by meandering, which is a well-known feature of the area. The meanders have been bypassed by The New Cut, a straight canal.The Cuckmere Valley Nature Reserve is located here as is the Seven Sisters Country Park ( LinkExternal link ).
Seven Sisters Country Park
Situated in the South Downs National Park, the Seven Sisters Country Park comprises 280 hectares of chalk cliffs, meandering river valley and open chalk grassland. It is a popular place for a number of outdoor activities including walking, birdwatching, cycling and canoeing. The Country Park is named after the famous Seven Sisters (LinkExternal link ) that form part of the chalk cliffs on the Sussex Heritage Coast, one of Britain's finest unspoilt coastlines. The park also contains the lower part of the River Cuckmere (LinkExternal link ) and Cuckmere Haven (LinkExternal link ). Website LinkExternal link
