Hey all,

While I was poking around the ES Council website, I found this very helpful map.

http://www.eastsussex.gov.uk/leisureandtourism/countryside/rightsofway/rightsofwaymap/map.aspx

It will highlight by-ways and other access routes on the map for you.

I have also been told that it stays pretty upto date as the council update it often with restrictions.

I'm actually looking to catalogue the greenlanes in east Sussex with videos.

Might make a small website or YouTube channel.

There is one near Hailsham which is notorious for getting 4x4 stuck, I really want to check it out but I don't have a winch yet.

Found a nice easy greenlane between Argos Hill and Rotherfield today.

Even had a small stream to go through!

One of my favorites so far!

Had a bit of hassel when I turned into the wrong lane, went to someone house before I realised a had made 1 turning too soon, the by-way was only 5m from it!

Took my brother with me who filmed and got some pics which I will upload later.

the ones on pPevensey levels can be a bit sticky if they're wet. I heard of one a few years ago Hailsham or maybe Battle direction that was supposed to be a bit challenging but it got resurfaced.

Anyone in East Sussex up for checking out a few lanes some times?

Not at the moment and not for a while and even then not in my off-roader until I do a lot of work on it Sad

Its listed as a bridleway and so can only be used by pedestrians and horses.

May even be a restriction on horses but i'm not sure.

It is not a Byway so you aren't allowed to drive down it.

I think the foresters are allowed to drive them for access to maintain the bridleways. This usually applies to East Sussex Council workers and the Forestry Commission.

A Byway will be indicated by a Red Arrow pointing down the track, also lookout for any notices of temporary closure or restrictions.


I found a nice Byway near Argos Hill, outside Rotherfield, on the B2101 opposite Sheriff's Lane. Its a bit tight for larger 4x4s, especially between the fences and trees. There is a nice stream you can drive through down the bottom of the track. You finish on Five Ashes Road.

ive been to most in east sussex, but i dont own a land rover anymore so cant come one any, most have been flatned or closed.

the oned up in jevington are ok been stuck a few times in the pouring rain and snow

also near hailsham there is a good green lane, not been for a couple years but it has a river each side of it so when it rains it gets boggy but when it drys out it isnt ruined or anything

I attempted (a couple weeks ago) the hailsham Greenland that follows the river towards herstmoncuex and it was extremely boggy.

I got stuck a few times (quiet badly) and as I don't have difflocks or a winch I decided to abandon the lane ( I was doing during my lunch break ) until it drys up a bit.

It's easy to find from the hailsham end but the other end was blocked by a dumper truck filled with mini-motos and old fridges ( probably a pikey going to flytip)
