Pyecombe Street at Dawn
Pyecombe Street at Dawn
The name of the street and small settlement about half a mile north of Pyecombe which grew up from the 17th century when the original settlement around the church was virtually abandoned. Until the 19th century this was the most populous part of Pyecombe but the coming of the turnpikes heading for the rapidly expanding resort of Brighton shifted the settlement back to its original position. The street itself ends just beyond Woodbine Cottage and becomes a bridleway heading up to Wolstonbury Hill. A solitary street lamp and Christmas lights in a few windows are the only light half an hour before sunrise.
