If you are purchasing a property in East Sussex, please ensure that you have a building survey carried out on it. A building survey, prepared by a chartered building surveyor could literally save you thousands of pounds. The survey only needs to uncover one potential problem with the property and the cost of the building survey is more than recovered.
East Sussex is made up of five areas which are Lewes, Wealdon, Rother, Eastbourne and Hastings. It has a Saxon background and its county town is Lewes and its major towns are Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings. It incorporates the South Downs which where the chalky hills can be seen and the rivers in the area are the River Ouse and River Cuckmere stretching from Brighton with a pebbled beach to the Rye area and as far as Pepit Level where there is Camber Sands with marshland. This is a beautiful area for carrying out surveys , b eing a surveyor travelling around the area is important to know the main routes most of these ‘A' roads such as the A27, A22, A271 and A26 with the M23 not too far away outside the Sussex area.
Here is a surveyors view on the beautiful area of East Sussex and we are going to start near the Kent border in the lovely area but is perhaps quite different from what you are used to seeing in East Sussex Pepit Level if you put this into your Satnav and take a drive and will take you from The Smugglers free house pub and then drive along Winchelsea beach to Rye, we think the scenery is breath taking and will you see a fantastic stretch of coast line, stop get out and have a look (OK it does have a pebble beach but the view is stunning) it is particularly interesting looking land the marshes and reed beds are more akin to Norfolk with the exception of the sheep (if I was going to be a sheep this is certainly where I would like to live)!

Some interesting facts about the Weald area
The Weald divides itself into High Weald which is the sandstone area and Low Weald which is the clay area and sand area. Weald itself means a forest or trees and is home to The Weald and Downland Open air Museum which is an amazing place, we are a member of this very special place which is the leading museum for historic buildings in England which has buildings dated from the13 th to 19 th century which have been rescued from lost and carefully and lovingly resurrected. In the 50 odd acres the museum takes up, many then have had appropriate gardens etc added to them and is a great day out. They also do some fantastic courses there, we have been on ones on lime, on bricks and on timber, we really have only scratched the surface.
Wealden Hall House is so famous it has made Wikipedia.
Weald timber framed construction is common in East Sussex and in Kent , for those interested there is plenty on the internet about timber framed structures. However the internet is not as good as visiting the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum where you will be able to structures that have used wattle and daub and thatched roofs that have been white washed, typical of the Weald construction it was only later in Victorian times that the timbers were blackened and that the bits between the timber frames were in filled with brick. Here are some examples of this that you may wish to visit; The Old Punch Bowl, Crawley, West Sussex, the Monks Barn, Newport East, Essex and examples of course in the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum such as The Bayleaf Farmhouse.
