|From:||Shoreham By-Pass A27|
|To:||Steyning By-Pass A283|
|Distance:||3.9 miles (6.3 km)|
The road starts on the A27 at a traffic controlled crossroads with Old Shoreham Road, which was the previous road across the Adur river before the Shoreham By-Pass was built. This junction is just North of Shoreham airport and in 2015 this junction was the site where a Hawker Hunter aircraft flying at Shoreham Airshow crashed killing 11 people. In footage of the plane crashing it shows it clearly being the start of the C13, unlucky for some.
the route of the C13 follows parallel to the A283, but on the other side of the Adur river. The C13 wiggles around and is narrow in places. As we approach Steyning we have to take a left turn to continue along the C13 where it shortly terminates on the A283 at a roundabout on the old side of Bramber Train Station.
