Warren Hill

The B2103 follows a winding route into Eastbourne from the west. The road was originally unclassified (the 1923 MoT map shows the part of the road not in Eastbourne is little more than a track) but it had gained its number between 1928 and 1932.

The road starts on the A259 on the top of Crapham Hill and heads east then south to descend Warren Hill. A view soon opens up on the left of Eastbourne with the English Channel beyond.

We bear left at a road junction onto Beachy Head Road (although Beachy Head itself is actually along the road to the right) and then the road TOTSOs right at a very sharply angled fork. The two roads run adjacent for a short distance until the B2103 starts to descend more steeply. A few hairpin bends take us into the outskirts of Eastbourne.

In the suburb of Holywell the road straightens out as it follows Duke's Drive along the coast; the sea is just visible to the right and gets gradually closer as the road continues northeastwards. We continue into the centre of Eastbourne, ending by the bandstand as the B2106 comes in from the left along Devonshire Place and takes on the road ahead.
