Go to Google Maps and search "Batemans, Bateman's Lane, Etchingham, East Sussex", and you'll see the river bit is safe and well and not built on.
We knew a family with connections in Burwash (Burersh) and he was not, apparently, much liked in the village. There was an incident when his "Hobdens" thought they should be getting paid more and he didn't, and was not happy about the suggestion of their striking. Two sides to the respect for the working man who really owns the land.
