Cuckmere Haven


2017
Cuckmere Haven is an area of flood plains in Sussex, where the river Cuckmere meets the English Channel which contains several oxbow lakes.
Ironwork, visible at low tide close to the river mouth is the wreck of the Polynesia, a German sailing ship wrecked in April 1890.
The area was used by smugglers from the 16th to 18th centuries. In 1783 two gangs of smugglers numbering 200 or 300 each overcame law officers by weight of numbers taking a large quantity of goods.
In the Second World War the area was a potential invasion point so many defences, pillboxes, anti-tank obstacles, ditches and tank traps still survive.
East Sussex Transport and Trading Company extracted gravel from the beach by transporting it to the road on a narrow gauge tramway 1.6 km long. Established early 1930s - closed 1964. This began in what is now the car park on the southern side of the main road. The path to the beach follows the tramway line.
