South Harting

Type:Towns & Villages

West Sussex, GU31 5QB
South Harting


Beacon Hill is 793ft, one of the highest points on the South Downs. Just to the south is Uppark, an elegant mansion built in 1680. HG Wells' mother worked at the house, and the author spent time there, using the extensive library.

Uppark was partly destroyed by a major fire in 1989, but was restored by the National Trust. Another author, Anthony Trollope, lived at South Harting and his pen can be seen in the local church, which has a famous copper covered spire, visible from miles around.
