Pyecombe, turnpike earthbank

In 1808 the turnpike from Brighton to Lowell heath was lowered to ease the gradient on Clayton hill and the spoil probably used to construct an earthbank across Wish bottom to even out the gradient. The turnpike swings to the left (south) joining the Roman Nore road where the two lines of Hawthorn meet (centre left). The village of Pyecombe can just be seen in the distance (centre left)
