From Sussex to Newhaven

The River Ouse flows through the heart of Sussex and out to the English Channel at Newhaven. 

The River Ouse – Sussex restoration aims to preserve the historical structures along the river and hopes to restore the river to navigation in suitable places. Restoration work is well advanced at Sutton Hall Lock at Isfield. The accumulated silt of 150 years has been removed and the lock chamber, culverts and associated wharf wall are being carefully restored. Initial clearance work has also taken place at Iron Gate Lock, in the grounds of Sheffield Park (National Trust).
