Walks around Fletching
The Parish of Fletching is blessed with nearly 30 kilometres (19 miles) of registered public footpaths. But these are just the survivors of the larger criss-cross network of trails that existed not so many years ago, when country people had to use their legs and had an interest in going places by the shortest way, across fields, along hedgerows, along farm tracks and rough lanes, through many wagon gates and over stiles, through pasture, wheat fields and roots, hop gardens, woodland and common. In our very different landscape the surviving paths are more for pleasure and exercise than work, but they also provide much interest and an insight into that past scene.
You may find the East Sussex County Council online rights of way map a useful tool to help you discover these footpaths:
