Complementary Information:Seine Maritime’s « Green Avenue » is located in Normandy. Approximately 45 km in length, this greenway follows, for most of its length the old railway line which connected the cities of Paris and Dieppe during the last century. It passes through pleasant and picturesque communities such as Forges-les-Eaux and Neufchatel-en-Bray. Today, the greenway ends some 7 km south of the spa of Dieppe, offering a ferry connection with England. This section has provided its name to the London to Paris Green Avenue, a cyclist’s itinerary of some 400 km, one third of which makes use of greenways, and two thirds of which is shared with roads.
