There’s a temporary route to the Victoria Pleasure Ground, Uckfield, while Old Timbers Lane is improved and we take a look at it here in a series of pictures.
The diversion is from New Town using the entrance to St Philip’s Primary School – which is closed for the summer – winds through the construction site where foundations for new homes are being built then rejoins the top of Old Timbers Lane before heading up to the Victoria Ground.
Our pictures show the return journey into New Town from the Victoria Ground. The picture above looks down Old Timbers Lane.
Turn right off the top of Old Timbers Lane and pass through a construction site where foundations are being dug for new homes.
Foundations of new homes emerge on the construction site.The Victoria ground is behind the fence at the top of the picture.
The road winds round towards the side of St Philip’s School.
