Reigate Rd Worthing

Interesting old columns, only ones in Worthing I can think of. Possible these may have had very old lanterns on at one time (like the ones that used to be over at Durrington and Goring). Presently mostly with Philips MA90s though one further down has an Eleco GR100

A259 Winchelsea II - Coppermine - 368.jpg
A259 Winchelsea II

Here, the A259 descends steeply towards Pipewell Gate - Winchelsea was once a walled town, three times its current size and with around ten times its current population (600). Beyond the left hand bend is a steep descent to a hairpin bend - very photogenic but my batteries ran out! Ahead is the flood plain of the River Breed.

A259 Winchelsea I

Winchelsea is arguably England's smallest town as well as its first 'new town' laid out in grid pattern in the 14th century. There is no doubt about its ability to contort the South Coast Trunk Road however! This view is from the former A259 'Strand Gate Hill'. The line of trees across the picture at the end of the straight is the Royal Military Canal. Ahead is Romney Marsh.

Here's the TOTSO of Canterbury Road - it continues to the right, and behind. Black Bull Road is to the left, although both Black Bull Road and Canterbury Road are part of the A259.

A long section of S4 at Lancing, between Worthing and Shoreham, although most of it is unusable, due to parked cars.

A259 Road Bridge - Geograph - 734057.jpg
A259 Road Bridge
Built in the early 1970s to replace the older swing bridge. The lifebelt seems to have been discarded from another point on the river and dropped at this point.
Norfolk Bridge - Geograph - 756182.jpg
Norfolk Bridge
The third bridge on the site having opened in 1970 to replace one built in 1923 which in turn had replaced the original 19th century suspension bridge. Prior to that all traffic over the Adur went by the 18th century wooden toll bridge.
Newhaven Swing Bridge - Geograph - 592762.jpg
Newhaven Swing Bridge
Viewed from the bridge to Denton Island. The only major crossing point south of Lewes and the cause of many a long traffic tailback when opened. The original, manually operated, swing bridge was to the south and was replaced by this one in the mid 1970s.

New Romney Sign - Coppermine - 46.JPG
New Romney Sign

A metal pre-Worboys fingerpost. This can be found beside the A259 as you leave New Romney by West View. It is nice to see a sign in Romney that still includes the seaside Mecca of Dymchurch and the historic hill town of Rye

The cycle path was completed this year and forms part of the almost traffic-free route between Worthing and Brighton. Here it runs parallel to the A259 Brighton Road often a point of serious congestion. The block of flats at the corner of Western Road, Lancing can be seen in the distance

The end is in sight for Haldon Hill. London to Penzance A38 eh? The A259 gets a bit of dualling as well.
