A north-south disused railway line with a good surface - shared use between cyclist and walks. Child friendly.
North of the route : There is a gap between Heathfield and Groombridge where the off road Forest Way starts. There is a waymarked on-road route - NCN 21
South of the route : The southerly (4 miles, 7 km) end of the route, from Polegate to Eastbourne, is an unscenic, but traffic free continuation of the route to Eastbourne's seafront - alongside busy roads. You can cycle along parts of the seafront promenade once your there - but watch out for strict enforcement of no-cycling on parts of the seafront.
