Looking towards East Grinstead from Hazleden Farm. The tip starts at the end of the straight, and at this point was still covered with vegetation.

In this August view, taken a few yards nearer to East Grinstead, and from a slightly different viewpoint, the trackbed is being prepared to receive the track. Note also the vegetation clearance along the cutting sides and onto the tip itself, where Imberhorne Lane bridge can be made out in the distance.

Just a few weeks later, and the track has been laid almost up to the southern face of the tip, and there is evidence of more vegetation clearance.
