TQ4200 :: Cliff Road

Taken 9 years ago by Simon Carey near Newhaven/TQ4401, East Sussex, England

Cliff Road by Simon Carey
Cliff Road

Part of the original 1920s layout of Peacehaven Heights and named as such on the 1928 OS map. However, no plots were ever sold down this road and the road fell into abeyance and lost its designation after the Second World War. I'm not sure when the road was surfaced but it does not stretch down to the cliff top so I'm guessing possibly Second World War. The track is not a public right of way though many people walk down it. The house with the flat roof to the right was built on the site of a former chalk pit which for many years was the only feature marked on a map between the road and the sea.
