Footpaths around Winchelsea

There are a number of footpaths through open countryside around Winchelsea. These are shown on the attached map. Most of the footpaths cross land that is grazed by animals. Much of this land is owned by the National Trust. They have issued guidance to walkers about crossing fields being grazed by livestock. Please read this guidance, which is particularly pertinent when the animals have young.

The County Council provide an online interactive map of rights of way across the county.The map covers the whole county. It lets you zoom into any area to show the footpaths, bridleways and byways in that location. You can also find out if there are any stiles, gates or bridges on the paths. The map can be searched by place, road name or grid reference. You can move around the map, show rights of way superimposed on an aerial photo, or get more information, such as path name and number, by clicking on a path or symbol when fully zoomed in.
