Summary: The journey of the Sussex Ouse Valley Way between source and sea passes through Slaugham, Handcross, Staplefield, Lindfield, Freshfield, Sheffield Park, Newick, Barcombe Mills, Hamsey, Lewes, Rodmell, Southease, Piddinghoe and Newhaven. The Way took over two years to develop. It was a collaboration between 'Per-Rambulations', both the East and West Sussex County Councils and the South Downs Joint Committee (then known as the Sussex Downs Conservation Board). Support for the project was received from the Sussex Ouse Restoration Trust, Harveys Brewery of Lewes, Footprints of Sussex and Ray Mears, the TV presenter, bushcraft expert and author.
