BOAT: Church Acre Drove

Location: Church Acre Drove, Pevensey, East Sussex BN24 5, UK
This is why you won't get through!
Update 13/01/2014: Although the overgrown foliage meant that it was impossible to get through anyway, this byway is now subject to a TRO for 6 months from 23/10/2013 to allow a water main to be installed, and as such is closed to motorised traffic.

This BOAT is a real disappointment in terms of greenlaning, especially since it passes through one of the most beautiful and historically important parts of the world: the marshes of Pevensey Levels. It starts off very easy going on a firm, grassy surface (at least in summertime! Other lanes in this area are heavily rutted through winter use when the marshes are obviously a lot damper.), and it is a very scenic lane. At approximately its halfway point it becomes too overgrown to continue (when heading westbound). As such, it's best to avoid this lane until a programme of dramatic clearance has been undertaken.

However, from a historical perspective this lane is very well placed, as follows:
