About public rights of way

1. Rights of way in East Sussex

East Sussex has around 2,000 miles (3,218km) of footpaths, bridleways and byways, providing access to some of the most beautiful countryside in the County. The County Council manages these paths to ensure that they give safe and easy access for the public.

Maintenance of the public rights of way is the responsibility of both the County Council and landowners. Find out more about what we maintain and landowner responsibilities.
