  • ALWAYS follow the Greenlane Code!
There are quite a few byways in the middle of the historically significant seaside town of Hastings, but like most of the others there's not much to see here with regards to green laning. Indeed this byway, between The Ridge and Pilot Road, is just an unmetalled suburban road giving access to the houses that line both sides of the lane. A Ford Fiesta could quite happily navigate this lane despite the potholes. Go elsewhere!

As an interesting historical aside, according to my grandfather Canadian troops were billeted here. In 1944 a 'doodlebug' flying bomb came down here and a fair few were killed. Also apparently a aircraft crashed here in the war.

These are East Sussex County Council's Hastings Byway 226, 229 and 229a, treated as one and the same for convenience.
