TAKE THE BUS FOR A WALK!

A new Saturday bus service has been launched to take walkers from Uckfield to the heart of Ashdown Forest.


The 262 Take the Bus for a Walk service will start and finish at Uckfield Bus Station and pass through Maresfield and Nutley on its way to Ashdown Forest.

There it follows a circular route revealing stunning views across the extensive heathland as it stops at several local attractions, including Nutley Windmill, Pooh Corner, The Llama Park and the Forest Visitor Centre.

This new service, part of the Forest Explorer network, will make four journeys every Saturday.

Wealden MP Nus Ghani will be launching the new Take the Bus for a Walk service at Uckfield Bus Station on Saturday 11th June.

This addition to the Forest Explorer bus network is an initiative supported by Wealden Bus Alliance, WealdLink, Maresfield Parish Council and Uckfield Town Council. It is a much more kinder way to enjoy Ashdown Forest, helping to reduce vehicle exhaust emission which threaten the nitrogen-deficient eco system of the Forest.
