Arlington Reservoir

Arlington Reservoir was completed in 1971 and can supply 23 million litres daily to the Eastbourne,Polegate, Hailsham and Heathfield areas. The reservoir (designated a local nature reserve in 1980, and an SSSI in 1985) was formed by cutting off a meander of the river Cuckmere with a concrete faced earth dam.There is a waymarked circular walk which includes the bird sanctuary and 'osprey' bird hide.Leaflets are available from the car park. There are also toilets.
