The Sussex Ouse Valley Way

This is a 42 mile long distance footpath which broadly follows the River Ouse from its source near Lower Beeding to the sea at Seaford Bay. It is a popular walk through the heart of the Sussex countryside, a route that takes it through Slaugham, Handcross, Staplefield, Lindfield, Newick, Isfield, Barcombe Mills, Hamsey, Lewes, Rodmell, Southease, Piddinghoe and Newhaven. The Pilstyes in Lindfield is very conveniently placed for an overnight stop and also has copies of the route for sale.
