LOST ROADS: ‘There was once a road through the woods.. ‘ runs Kiplings poem about a lost road and it is surprising how everyone gets used to new developments. The Pevensey Bypass was opened right back in 1991 before which large lorries went straight through Pevensey. When the Esso Station, bypass and roundabout came into existence the roads coming into Pevensey changed and the little layby on the south side of the road near the Pevensey Gateway sign (the one causing a nuisance for car sales) used to be the entrance to Sluice Lane. On the other side I assume was the entrance to the Wartling Road. This Road ran alongside a bend in Pevensey Haven which I seem to remember was cut off and turned into a fishing lake with lots of disabled parking. The lake has now silted up and the parking kept being used by travellers so eventually a barrier and then piles of earth were put there. It all seemed to have been an expensive folly. It’s amazing what disappears into the undergrowth and how we have our own forgotten roads.
