ROTTINGDEAN ROAD, THE OLD AND THE NEW
Three stages in the construction of the new coast road, during 1932. At Ovingdean Gap the old road was within a few feet of the edge of the cliff.
Note the long low wall at the top of the cliff. The old road ran immediately to the landward of this, and was a very great danger in stormy or misty weather. To travel by open-top bus along this road in a gale was something of an adventure.
