Mill Lane, Halnaker view southwestwards
Mill Lane, Halnaker view southwestwards
This view southwestwards along Mill Lane to the northeast of Halnaker, particularly shows the tunnel-like effect created by the trees overarching the track. I was far from alone in taking photos of this scene, as it seems to be a well-known spot with photographers trying to catch a fine example of Autumnal colours. The photo was taken from the gate seen in the distance in SU9108 : Mill Lane section of Stane Street in Autumn. At this point the public footpath leaves the main track and runs parallel with it on a bank immediately to the south. A little further to the northeast the footpath forks, with one footpath continuing roughly straight northeastwards along the old Stane Street route, while a second path heads northwards to SU9209 : Halnaker Windmill atop Halnaker Hill.

Stane Street

Stane Street is the modern name given to an important 90-kilometre-long Roman road that linked London to the Roman town of Noviomagus Reginorum, or Regnentium, later renamed Chichester by the Saxons.
Today the Roman road is easily traceable on modern maps. Much of the route is followed by the A3, A24, A29 and A285, although most of the course through the modern county of Surrey has either been completely abandoned or is followed only by bridlepaths.
