Welcome to the Lower Beeding Parish website, which aims to provide a source of useful information to residents and visitors.
The Lower Beeding Parish lies in the heart of rural West Sussex between the North and South Downs and on the edge of St Leonards Forest. For centuries the Forest was a rich source of iron ore and the area is known for its Hammer ponds, established in the 16th century to supply water to the smelting forges. The Parish embraces the small village of Lower Beeding and the hamlets of Crabtree and Plummers Plain. The village is centred around Holy Trinity Church and the Plough public house, where Sandygate Lane (B2115) meets Handcross Road (B2110). A short distance away is the small and popular Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School.
The historic market town of Horsham is 4 miles to the north-west and, at a similar distance to the north-east, Handcross village allows access to the A23/M23 north to Gatwick and London and south to Brighton.
In addition to the Plough, there are two other public houses in the Parish, The Wheatsheaf at Plummers Plain and The Crabtree. There is a range of accommodation available in the Parish, including Bed & Breakfast establishments and Hotels.
