Route outline (key)
A267 Royal Tunbridge Wells - Horsebridge


The A267 is one of the north-south routes in Kent and East Sussex.

Royal Tunbridge Wells - Horsebridge

The road leaves the A26 at a mini-roundabout just to the south of Tunbridge Wells town centre and after passing a few typical boutique-style shops, the road begins to climb for around a mile. Once out into open countryside, it becomes a fairly fast undulating road of sweeping curves.


The first village on the road, Frant, is a pleasant village with stately-looking stone dwellings overlooking the triangular village green. The road continues with the odd bit of woodland to Mark Cross, which merits a brief bypass of the village centre, and later Argos Hill. There is no catalogue superstore here (as the name may suggest) - just a fifty limit and a straggling hamlet with an oast house.

We now reach Mayfield. The bypass, built on the formation of the old 'Cuckoo Line' (the Eridge - Polegate railway line), is just two sweeping bends, but the original route is worth a detour, as this is a typical weatherboard Wealden village with a pretty High Street.

After the roundabout marking the end of the bypass, there are double white lines occupy the centre of the road. Five Ashes tends to go on a bit (as some Sussex villages tend to do) and soon the westbound A272 leaves to the right.

At Cross in Hand you will invariably find the beginning of the rush-hour traffic-jam into Heathfield. Straight on is the A265, whilst the A267 TOTSOs right and narrows a bit, although it does bypass the majority of Heathfield. It is hemmed in by trees until it reaches Horam - a modern-looking village of brick buildings and shops.

Beyond is the unremarkable hamlet of Cogger's Cross, beyond which the road speeds up a little with the odd glimpse of the South Downs. On the northern edge of Hailsham the road bears round to the right to meet the A22 Hailsham bypass; the old southern end of the A267 is now numbered B2104
