Welcome to our lovely village of Ovingdean. Nestled in the South Downs National Park and running down to the sea it is a lovely, caring and quiet village with a long history.

Ovingdean is also forward thinking, being a plastic free village, with an active biodiversity conservation network and a community energy project under way.

This website is intended to act primarily as a communication tool for the village residents, but it will also contain useful information for visitors too.
