When Old Shoreham Road was widened, channelled and paved, about 1930 traffic was comparatively light and the awkward bends presented little problem. Now, this once country road forms part of the busy A27, which is gradually being widened throughout and the stretch seen above is undergoing straightening and widening as well as a levelling out of the steep gradient to the east. Three photographs were taken on 29 June 1969, when the project was mooted but long before work was to start.
