What’s it like?
A perfectly-kept village green is at the picturesque heart of Newick, which, according to legend, is set on an ancient pilgrims way between Winchester and Canterbury. Certainly Newick, which was first inhabited more than 1,000 years ago, has a rich history which underpins its present-day charm. The parish church of St Mary dates from Norman times, and each of the three village pubs has its own intriguing links to the past.
The village has every modern attraction too. It is a thriving and friendly community which has a primary school rated outstanding; stores including a butcher, baker, post office and pharmacy, and a village health centre. There is an impressive range of active sports clubs (from rugby to bowls) and community organisations including an amateur dramatic society. A perfect place for every age group.
Newick lies deep in the beautiful East Sussex countryside, with Ashdown Forest and Chailey Common nature reserve close by. But for the commuter, Haywards Heath is only a few miles away, with a comfortable 45-minute journey to London, and the busy towns of Lewes, Burgess Hill and Uckfield are all easily accessible.
