Access to the "Keep"

View, looking north-east, of Woollards Field where the Keep is proposed. The site is aligned southwest to northeast between  the Brighton-Lewes railway line and the A270 (the Brighton to Lewes Road)

The end of the Keep nearest this viewpoint will lie approximately in the centre of the picture.

The access road will be at other, northeast, end of the site. To the left of this viewpoint is a pedestrian tunnel under the railway line givng access to Falmer station, to the right is the road access to the A270.




View from the A270. The pedestrian tunnel can be seen just left of centre: the access road seen in the previous photo turns off to the right at the far end.





Looking across the A270 in the opposite direction from the previous photo the pillars (one still under construction) can be seen which will carry the southbound interchange link between the A27 and the A270. The road in the foreground will become a slip road. Using buses, visitors to the Keep from Lewes will alight in this slip road: visitors from Brighton will alight on the remote side of the link road and walk under it.

On the other side of the railway tunnel a pedestrian & cycle route to Falmer Station is under construction. It is intended to be well-lit and provided with CCTV coverage.
The walk from the station to the Keep will take about 15 minutes.



A doomed late Victorian detached villa which appears to be in the path of an intended left filter lane from the slip road.
