Default Wivelsfield - Southampton via Barnham

Hi, I am travelling from Wivelsfield to Southampton Central tomorrow. I purchased my ticket in advance from Southern to get a cheaper price and having collected my tickets I notice they say 'route via Barnham'.

Can anyone tell me if I can use the Wivelsfield - Three Bridges - Horsham - Barnham - Southampton route, or does this mean I must use the Brighton/Hove - Barnham - Southampton route?
When I booked the tickets I was specifically looking at the Coastway West route along from Brighton, but there seems to be quite a good service via Horsham and Three Bridges, so it would be nice to know if I can use this option too. After all, both are Southern routes.

I realise that I definitely cannot use the Clapham Junction - Southampton via SWT route - that is fine.

Thanks in advance.

Havenít got time to check but I expect the answer is either or, I'd be surprised if you could not use both.

Thanks for the replies guys - looks like I should be safe to use either route.

This is a permitted route.

You're permitted to go via either Brighton or Horsham.

In addition, you're permitted to use Gatwick Express services.

Just to add a few details about Southern fares policy if you'll allow me

Within the Southern network outside of London we are moving to a simplified fares structure

We have maximum fares examples as follows:

anytime single £14.90
off-peak day return £15.00
weekly season £60.00

From May we will be creating another tier as follows:

anytime single £12.90
off-peak day return £13.00
weekly season £52.00

anytime single fares between £13.00 and £14.80 will be reduced to £12.90

off-peak day return fares between £13.10 and £14.90 will be reduced to £13.00

etc

And yes your ticket is valid via either route (Worthing or Horsham) as long as you pass through Barnham. And the same fare should also apply to Beaulieu Road (part of the Southampton Central fares cluster)
