OLD RAILWAYS ON HORSEBACK
Worth Way
The Worth Way is a 7-mile Greenaway and bridleway linking the West Sussex towns of Crawley and East Grinstead via the village of Crawley Down. Mostly it follows the trackbed of a disused railway path and is an important wildlife corridor. It is part of the National Cycle Network 21. It looks firm under foot. It follows much of the Three Bridges to Tunbridge Wells Central Line that opened in 1855, closing in 1967 by the Beeching cuts. It did reopen in 1979 and was re-opened as a footpath and Bridleway, but for some parts it was too late as it had been lost to development in Crawley Down. As a result about 110 yards of the Worth Way is on local roads. Another minor diversion occurs near Rowfant railway station where the former goods yard is in industrial use and the route briefly diverts to the road. These diversions look to be busy areas so take care. You can add to your journey by following the route from/to the Forest Way by travelling through East Grinstead.
