River Cuckmere :: Shared Description

The River Cuckmere rises near Heathfield in East Sussex, 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 meanders, which are 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 ).
