History of the Forest Way railway The railway line was opened by the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway in 1866 as an extension of the Three Bridges to East Grinstead branch line. Forest Row was the busiest of the intermediate stations, dealing in minerals and general goods. It was finally closed as part of the Beeching cuts in 1966.

the Route runs from East Grinstead to Groombridge, on seven flat, traffic-free miles along the Forest Way, a disused railway that takes you right to the edge of Groombridge. Form Groombridge one can cycle on road to Heathfield and link up with The Cuckoo Trail to the west another cycle path takes cyclists to Crawley and eventually to London and Brighton
