TQ5218 : Beechy Road

near to East Hoathly, East Sussex, Great Britain

Beechy Road
Beechy Road
Narrow highway connecting Hollow Lane to Scaines Hill, the B2192. The straight nature of the road belies its origins on a surveyors plan as the whole area between the roads was once the location of Barnett or Barnard's Wood. A road seems not to exist on the 1778-83 Yeakell & Gardner map but does, albeit running to the south past a number of cottages and barns, on the 1813 OS map. Since then the wood has been grubbed and the road straightened out following the original line drawn with a ruler on a surveyor's map.
