A walk in the park

This walk looks at an area of the Cuckmere Valley which was used, by the monks of Michelham Priory for hunting and fishing, perhaps surprisingly as they should have been devoting time to their prayers. But then these same monks were not adverse to making unauthorised visits to their local watering hole either. The Priory itself is now owned by the Sussex Archaeological Society.
