TQ5100 : Old Course of the Cuckmere River

taken 4 years ago, near to Westdean, East Sussex, Great Britain

Old Course of the Cuckmere River
Old Course of the Cuckmere River
A former loop of the river that has been straightened though its old course is still used as a boundary between Lewes and Wealden district councils. Another old loop, see TQ5100 : Old Course of the Cuckmere River lies about a hundred yards to the south. The meander existed on Yeakell & Gardner's 1778-83 map but had been straightened by the time of the 1813 OS Map. The depression in the ground is the only evidence at present though during wet periods it will fill with water and show itself better.
