A259 at Winchelsea
A259 at Winchelsea
The A259 used to go right through Winchelsea itself, a place reputed to be England's smallest town and perhaps even England's oldest new town, laid out in a grid pattern in the fourteenth century. Today the trunk road descends steeply to the stone 'Land Gate' - the slope shown here, and presents the driver with a dramatic hairpin-bend at the bottom. The valley in the background is that of the River Brede.
