Forest Way to Worth Way

Avoiding the Footbridge

You can avoid the footbridge but this entails cycling along the A22 and one way system! Traffic crosses from one side of the road with little regard for cyclists! See the map above for the route.

Food!

There are a number of food & drink outlets that you pass however one of our favourites is CJ's a new Bistro type cafe at the eastern end of the High Street which serves a nice selection of hot & cold sandwiches and drinks. Bertram Bookshop, (near the war memorial), situated in an old Tudor house serves tea, coffee & cake.
