  Shown when there are at least four ratings.

This is the second part of the A272 Winchester to Haywards Heath route. The A272 is an epic trek through parts of Hampshire and Sussex. This road is notable for having an entire book dedicated to it: A272: An Ode to a Road by Pieter Boogaart, which became something of a minor cult and even inspired a TV programme. According to Mr Boogaart, the significance of the road is that it once connected England's ecclesiastical capital, Canterbury, to its political capital, Winchester (although the A272 itself has never reached Canterbury).

The A272 is best in spring, as hawthorn blossoms in the hedgerows, or just after the harvest has been gathered in, when huge round bales stand like obelisks on dusty sun-baked stubble.

At the end of this section you can easily continue either to the last section of this route or to A285: Chichester – Petworth, West Sussex route.
