"This was a generic shot of the road leading to the waterboard, and seems unlikely to be the actual place they filmed."

Additional Notes:

»

8 Mar 2007: The photo was taken on the bridlepath leading from Westdean, based upon local walkers saying it did go to the waterboard, and the location being cited as in Westdean. However, it now seems that the road is more likely to be the forest roads near Friston Place (and the directions/coordinates are based on that).

16 Apr 2007: Having now followed the roads surrounding the waterboard buildings there were no 'farm' buildings obviously present, though it looks like Friston Place might have had a farm where there are now private homes. Also note the car park price has increased from 1.00 to 1.50 this season!
