Hailsham - Battle
Leaving the A22, this road winds its way through Horsebridge village before entering the northern suburbs of Hailsham where it winds a little more with the addition of a crash barrier.
We then climb steadily via Magham Down and enter Herstmonceux - a well endowed village with a castle, and the former location of an observatory related to, but not on, the Greenwich meridian.
The next smaller village is Windmill Hill, and after that Boreham Street, which isn't very big, but still retains a functional filling station, we descend with a fine view of the road ahead to the TOTSO with the A269. We turn left.
After a couple of significant straights and a couple of significant bends, the scenery becomes wooded for a bit, but there is nothing noteworthy until we reach Battle and the roundabout with the A2100. Turn right for the town centre and the Abbey.
