Key landmarks of Burpham and Wepham
The streets are lined with Sussex flint cottages. You’re sure to love the food and drink in Burpham’s 17th century George & Dragon gastropub.
The Saxon church of St Mary includes a special window through which lepers could watch Mass. Famous residents buried in the churchyard include Mervyn Peake, author of Gormenghast, and noted author and naturalist, Rev. Tickner Edwardes.
As both villages have no through traffic, they are destination villages from where you can access some amazing walks, horse-rides and mountain-bike rides.
Both offer easy access to the hilly South Downs and the beaches of Climping and Littlehampton. The market town of Arundel is just three miles away, and you can enjoy racing at nearby Goodwood or Fontwell, as well as a visit to Chichester with its famous Cathedral and theatre.
