  • ALWAYS follow the Greenlane Code!
This byway is currently subject to a TRO and as such is closed to motorised traffic. Motorised traffic, that is, unless you happen to ride a trail bike, in which case it is wide open to you! Apparently this is because there is a bridge in pretty poor nick which a fair bit of work doing to it before it is made safe for heavier vehicles such as 4x4's. As such the byway is closed for 9 months from 12/12/2014. Time will tell if it ever re-opens, but we are sceptical! Avoid for now.

Just down the A275 to the south, the lovely and ancient town of Lewes is well worth exploring, and nearby to the byway lie Lewes Castle and the site of the nationally important Battle Of Lewes (1264). The museum in the castle has more information and is well worth checking out. The town also has a great many pubs, almost all of which are just awesome so we shan't recommend any particular one: try your luck! Ale aficionados can do far worse than have a tour of Harveys Brewery but, be warned: the waiting list for a tour is over two years long!.

To ESCC this is Chailey Byway 8.
