Water works COMPLETED (ahead of schedule)

April 30, 2020

The works are now complete 

Water works (final) phase 4 section, Weavers Lane to The Tye (access road)

April 02, 2020

This phase is now due to start on Monday 14th April. Here is the official letter (edited to correct for latest update on dates):

New water main installation in High Street, Alfriston – Weavers Lane.

As you may be aware, we are undertaking works to replace 600 metres of old pipework through Alfriston ... we will be closing the road from just south of The Tye to the junction between Weavers Lane, High Street and Whiteway ... 

This will mean that there will be no access to Alfriston from Seaford ...

We expect the works to take around three to four weeks to complete, however we will look to complete this work as quickly as possible.

Access to The Tye will be maintained but the direction may change depending on the position of the works.

Who can I contact if I have any queries about these works? To register for free text or email updates about work in your area, visit For more information and to keep up to date on the progress of the works visit:

We have a dedicated Customer Services Manager, Steve Anthony, who will be contactable at all times on 07926 535414 to respond to questions and issues.

On behalf of South East Water, I thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation during these improvement works.

Water works - village square finished

March 16, 2020

The complex triangle of pipe-works in the village square is now complete and work has moved along to Star Lane through to Weavers Lane.

Water works - carpark entrance widened

February 03, 2020

Works to widen the eastern (bottom) entrance to The Dene carpark and make it two-way are complete. They have also completed the works in the section of North St between the entrance to The Willows carpark and this new entrance to The Dene carpark.


This means that both carparks are now fully accessible from the Drusillas road (from the A27) - hopefully a permanent improvement that means it is no longer necessary to drive through the village square to get to the top entrance to The Dene carpark.

They have also made the top entrance two-way but not widened it, with signage giving priority to traffic coming into the carpark.

This means it is easier than ever to drive over, park and have a leisurely stroll around the village.

Water works - finishing North St

January 24, 2020

Hot tar meets bucket of water and an already misty morning turns almost Victorian.

This week the trench has been filled and the road surface re-instated. Vehicles can get up North St. but there's only the dead end of the works in the square to get to.

Advance notice of Alfriston water work

October 29, 2019

South East Water is planning to install a new water main in the High Street and North Street in Alfriston.

This work will start in January and will involve the closure of the village centre to through traffic for approximately five months. 


Access to homes, shops and businesses will be maintained but a diversion will be in place for through traffic.

If you would like further details, please contact South East Water 


The project team from South East Water is partnering with contractor Clancy Docwra.
