A long closed but not forgotten country byway. Heathfield-Polegate is now the very popular Cuckoo cycle trail, although sadly with the shortsightedness that is epidemic in this country many of the bridges have gone so a few diversions are necessay but still well worth the effort, especially on a winters day when it is quiet, leaving Horam you can almost here the tanks digging into the 1:50! The Victoria-Eastbourne commuter trains must have been very entertaining with a Standard 4 tank and 7 on blasting their way up the 1:50 gradients, the sound is of 80079 leaving Rickmansworth on 21/05/1995, with a little imagination it could be leaving Horam and heading for Vic.

      Nr Mayfield. The huge proportions of this underbridge, built for a single track and a headshunt, over a country lane, meant it was large enough to support todays Mayfield bypass. 15/03/2012

      Mayfield, These two photos illustrate very well how there is no such thing as just converting old railway lines into roads. Massive earthworks and millions of pounds later, Mayfield is high and dry and the platforms have disappeard down the new embankment. 16/04/1991
