The photos below show the first of two trees that I trimmed and tidied.
|Lime tree - before and after.|

While I was working round this tree, a gentleman told me that vehicles used to be able to drive along the avenue. I asked a question about this in the Facebook group: Memories of Uckfield. Thank you to Donna, Sandra, Jo, Sally, Claire and Joanne, who contributed memories about Lime Tree Avenue. Between them, they:
- originally led up to Uckfield House
- explained that you could drive from Hempstead Lane up to the front entrance of the school, which was where the leisure centre is now
- added some lovely details on subjects ranging from pilgrims to cross-country runs.
