Axle bench on the Cuckoo Trail
Axle bench on the Cuckoo Trail
This ingenious use of a railway axle as the support for a bench is appropriate for this former railway line. I have seen something similar in Germany LinkExternal link but don't know where the idea started.
The Cuckoo Trail
This 13 mile (21km) surfaced path through the Sussex countryside is mostly traffic free and is a safe route for walkers and cyclists of all ages, forming part of the National Cycle Network route 21.

The picturesque trail follows the former 'Cuckoo Line' railway track and stretches from Heathfield to Eastbourne Park. It passes through Horam, Hailsham and Polegate.
