There really is nothing remarkable about this short stretch of byway that runs alongside the A22 for a total of 900m or so, other than it was a Roman Road which ran from London to Portslade, which then became a turnpike road before the dual-carriageway A22 came along. It's now been relegated to the access road for Paddock Farm, Quarry Farm and a fishery. Not really worth the bother.

A Napoleonic hill fort called  Pilgrim Fort, similar to those on Box Hill and above Reigate, can be found over the A22, and for those interested in viticulture Quarry Hill Vineyard lies just to the east of the greenlane.
