Fun & Interesting Facts

'Uckfield', first recorded in writing as 'Uckefeld' in 1220, is an Anglo-Saxon place name meaning 'open land of a man called Ucca'.


Hold onto your hats and get ready for a journey back in time to the vibrant and bustling town of Uckfield! This charming little gem has a fascinating history that will transport you to an era of pilgrimage, indulgent treats, and architectural wonders.

Long ago, Uckfield emerged as a vibrant pitstop along the legendary pilgrimage route connecting Canterbury, Chichester, and Lewes. It quickly became a hub of activity, attracting travelers from far and wide. One of the town's beloved attractions was the famous Pudding Cake Lane, where weary adventurers would flock to a lively tavern for mouthwatering slices of delectable pudding cake. Oh, the tantalising sweetness that awaited them!


From the A23, exit onto the A272 heading East towards Haywards Heath and Petersfield. Stay on the A272 for approximately 10 miles and in the village of North Chailey, at the double mini roundabouts, take the A275 North signposted for Sheffield Green. After approximately 3.5 miles and having passed through Sheffield Green, the entrance for Heaven Farm is on the left and well signposted with brown tourist signs.

Please park in the main car park.
