Westham Village Conservation Group

Welcome to Westham Village Conservation Group!

Westham is a beautiful and historic village, comprising a number of listed buildings and the first church in England - St.Mary's - to be built by the Normans, circa 1080. It also features a wonderful ancient country lane - Peelings Lane - which links the village centre to the nearby village of Stone Cross and is part of the E9 link between the South Downs Way and the 1066 Walk enjoyed by walkers, horse riders and cyclists. But, like many English villages, its rural character is under threat from the effects of unsuitable housing developments in the surrounding countryside. That is why the decision was taken in 2014 by a few local residents to form a conservation group to:


  1. stimulate public interest in the history, character and beauty of Westham
  2. act as a forum for canvassing villagers' views relating to issues affecting the village
  3. encourage wise conservation & enhancement
  4. where appropriate, to resist plans for unsuitable developments in the village & its immediate surroundings.
