The Highway
The Highway
Looking down towards its junction with South Coast Road, the A259, at the eastern end of Peacehaven. Now a restricted byway it was the original road to Newhaven across what was then open downland. The new route branching off to the right was added in the early 19th century when the road was turnpiked and lessened the gradient when negotiating Rushy Hill. The road is still used as an access route for the houses on Peacehaven Heights.
