Have you cycled or ridden along the Old Toll Road at Barcombe Mills? It’s an attractive and well used route from the car park by the Barcombe to Wellingham road, across a number of old bridges, before dividing with one route connecting to a byway on the north bank of the River Ouse and the other route along Hayes Lane. But at the moment this old highway (coloured green) could be closed at any time as it is not on the East Sussex County Council's Definitive Map of rights of way nor on their Highways Terrier as an adopted road. To keep it safe by adding it to the map of rights of way, we need to show that people have used it “as of right” without asking permission or having an individual agreement with the landowner for at least 20 years. We need horse riders and cyclists who have used the route to give evidence by filling in the attached form. Because people move away it is harder to get evidence in the past, so we are particularly keen to get evidence of use in the 1990s, but all evidence is very welcome. If you know of anyone else who has used the route please let them know about this. Please click on the link below to fill out the form. Please return the form to Mary Parker at Cottinghams, East Chiltington, BN7 3QT or email it to mary.parker@mail.com as soon as possible. http://midsussexbridleways.org.uk/?vault=user-form-2
