The Sussex Ouse Valley Way follows the course of the River Ouse from its source near Lower Beeding in West Sussex to the sea at Seaford Bay in East Sussex.
The trail passes through diverse and beautiful scenery, including the High Weald and Sussex Downs Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is a wealth of history and abundant wildlife.

I've reported the footpath again to Rights of Way Officer for West Sussex area. The farmer is deliberately making footpaths unusable photos and more info here https://eastlandsfarm.co.uk

At the beginning when you come out of the woods into the open the fields are in a bad way and for a farmer so determined on keeping everyone off his land i would have thought Eastlands Park Estate would reinstate the footpaths in a more timely manner, instead the farmer ploughs them, then 2 to 4 days later he brakes it down “tilling” maybe, However he then leaves it so the footpaths are very hard to walk on like sand, but it’s still passable if its dry, But if it rains they then become un passable just deep mud that crosses the middle of a ploughed field, on top of that it looks like the farmer drives up and down on a quad bike because there is deep mud tracks to try and pass. This part of the walk is terrible and im amazed something isn't done about it. i reported this problem last year but nothing seems to change.

Hi Judith, this is almost entirely a footpath. There are some sections that are a bridleway and therefore can be cycled. But the parts you can ride aren't consistent so you will need to keep taking diversions. The leaflet for the trail is here https://www.walkandcycle.co.uk/sussex/Trails/100-149/SUSSTR0100.pdf.

I am very unclear whether you can cycle along the Sussex Ouse Valley Way. Are there obstructions such as stiles, kissing gates etc that make this difficult? I can't find any info about cycling apart from in the title.
