General information


This is an 8 mile circular Wealden walk in East Sussex starting in Robertsbridge.  Names have a curious way of changing over the centuries: Bugsell Farm, on this walk, derives its name from 'beech building', or 'building by a beech', from the Old English word(s) 'boc(ge)selle'; Beech Farm is right next door. There is a Bugsell Wood nearby, and Bugsell Hill is across the railway.  Etchingham was 'the settlement of Ecci's people' in Saxon times. The church was built in the 14th century by William de Etchingham on the site of an earlier church.
