Rights of way map


Read the reports on the result of our consultation, Shaping the future of our countryside access.

Use our interactive rights of way map to find where to walk and ride in East Sussex.

What the map shows

The map covers the whole county and lets you zoom in to any area to show the footpaths, bridleways and byways in that location. You can also find out if there are any stiles, gates or bridges on the paths.

You can also make your own maps by downloading our Rights of Way network data. See Rights of Way open data.

How to use the map

To navigate our rights of way map, you can:

  • search by place, road name or grid reference
  • move around by clicking and dragging or using the small arrowed buttons at each corner and midsection
  • zoom in or out by double-clicking, using the slider bar on the left-hand side or your mouse wheel
  • show the rights of way on an aerial photo by clicking on the ‘Aerial’ button
  • get more information, such as path name and number, by clicking on a path or symbol when fully zoomed in. Please note that if there is more than one object at the same location, the symbols will not show the exact location of the items, therefore, if you click on a symbol and can’t see any information, try clicking on the path line next to the symbol.
