The River Ouse – source to the sea
Speaker: Dr. Geoffrey Mead
The Ouse crosses four of the five main geographical regions of Sussex; rising in the High Weald and collecting subsidiary streams as it flows east and south across the Low Weald and through the rich Scarpfoot, until it carves a huge gorge through the South Downs twice, before entering the Channel. This talk looks at the geology and geography, social and economic history of the Ouse basin.
