Uckfield
Uckfield High Street in 1903
Uckfield High Street in 1903
The town itself is remarkably neat; the houses are good, and many of them large and elegant. The neighbourhood is distinguished for its picturesque scenery; and the lover of nature may find his taste amply gratified, whether he rambles towards the stately mansion of Buxted, or lose himself in the rich and romantic grounds of Copwood. The rocks that overhang the beautiful lake on this estate … are remarkably picturesque - the building standing embowered in luxuriant trees.
