There is access to Abbots Wood car park from both directions (ie to and from Arlington and Hailsham) at Caneheath but the road is officially 'closed'. If you do drive through this 'road closed' area be aware that there are no lights around the areas where the water company is working so drive slowly and be prepared for oncoming traffic and delays during the day. This road will be 'closed' until 24th June. It's not advisable to turn into Tye Hill Lane at the 'road closed' sign as it is very narrow at the far end.
To access the village hall without driving in the 'road closed' area you need to follow the diversion signs from Hailsham direction past Michelham Priory, left towards Berwick station then take the left turn towards Arlington (shortly after going over the railway crossing).
From the Wilmington direction, take the a27 to the Drusillas roundabout, turn right towards Berwick Station then right towards Arlington
