The Lane
Westdean, East Sussex

The Lane is the only route into the village of Westdean, and as such is also referred to as the "Westdean and Church Only" road. It is prone to flooding in bad weather, cutting the village off!

How to get here:

»

Road: A26 - Follow the A26 to Newhaven, then join the A259 towards Eastbourne. After passing through Seaford, just before the Seven Sisters Country Park there is a junction on the left to Littlington (Littlington Road). The Lane will then be on the right (no through road). +
