Cuckmere Haven & the Cuckmere Valley

Countryside Centre
Middle Farm lies on the A27 Eastbourne to Brighton road, between West Firle and Selmeston

here for the Seven Sisters Web Site.

Cuckmere is a Saxon word "cwicu mere" which translates to "alive/fast sea" probably meaning that the valley had a fast flowing tide, this was due to the Sea Level being much higher in Saxon times.
The Cuckmere Haven is a beautiful area in East Sussex, it has the most iconic view of Sussex, which can be seen by parking on the Seaford side of the valley beyond Seaford golf course and walking down to Cuckmere Haven.
