B2123 Falmer Road

The B2123 runs across the South Downs to the east of Brighton. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in 1935.

The road starts at a tight dumbbell junction with the A27 outside the various universities at Falmer. From here the road takes a gentle course through fields with views over northern Brighton. We enter the village of Woodingdean and have a signalised crossroads with a route to Brighton. This is a problem, as there is no turning lane and traffic often stacks back for at least a mile. Northbound, the road not only has a turning lane but a shortcut for which the traffic lights are permanently green.

From here we continue down the hill, with views of the sea disappearing, past the speed camera and eventually out of the village, although it's not long until we reach Rottingdean. At this point the road splits in to two narrow one-way roads, running past the lake, but with some completely unnecessary speed humps which ruin it all. Eventually the southbound road gives way to the northbound one as the two reconvene, but for the next 150 yards the road is narrow with parked cars being a huge problem. The road ends at a set of lights with the A259, by the sea.
