Local Walks

We have miles of footpaths and bridle ways in the Parish and all will take you through beautiful, rolling countryside. East Sussex County Council have produced digital versions of footpath maps (see below); the map below gives you an indication of the extent of our local footpath network. All are marked on the local OS maps.

Digital Maps now available

East Sussex County Council released digital maps of rights of way in February 2011. Click here for the link to the ESCC website - you'll have to insert your point of interest.

Walks around Burwash - or should I call them strolls?

For more details please contact Jon Jenner 01435 882045

On the first Wednesday of each month, I plan a walk around our countryside for anyone who would like to come along. These “walks” are gentle strolls for those who like to take time to enjoy our beautiful countryside at a leisurely pace. We leave the Bear Car Park at 9 a.m. and are always home before lunchtime.


We'd like to know if the footpaths within our Parish are blocked, bridges or stiles damaged, or to hear about any problems that prevent their usage. Maintenance is the responsibility of East Sussex County Council but please contact me, Councillor I. Jenner here or by telephone on 01435 882 045, with full details of the location and the problem, and accompanied by digital images, if possible.  I will bring these problems to the attention of  East Sussex County Council and ask them to address the issue(s).
