A279 Lower Beeding - Handcross
The former A279 (now B2110) near Ashfold Crossways

The A279 was a short A-road in north Sussex.

It started on the A281 south of Lower Beeding and headed north into the centre of the village. From here, the A280 used to run west back to the A281 but this later became a spur of the A279.

From Lower Beeding the A279 headed northeastwards. Originally the road ended at the southern end of Handcross (TQ261297) on the A23 (now B2114). When Handcross High Street was bypassed, the A279 took over the old A23 route north through town to end at the far end of the bypass.

The A279 was downgraded to B2110 between 1993 and 1996 (although the ex-A280 is now part of the B2115). The old A23 route became part of the B2114. The northern end of the A279 is no longer a junction but its location is where the abandoned Handcross bypass alignment joins the B2114; this is clearly visible from the air.
