Key Landmarks of Oving

Oving has the lovely St Andrews Church resting in it, which dates from the 13th century.

The most popular watering hole in the village is the Gribble Inn, a country pub serving real ale. Fursty Ferret, the ale, originated from this pub and is now owned by Hall and Woodhouse. The charming pub has good views over the Downs, and their own micro brewery on site.

Surrounded by countryside, this village is a great place to use as a base to explore the majestic South Downs.
