Wisborough Green

Type:Towns & Villages

Billingshurst, West Sussex, RH14 0EG
Wisborough Green


Wisborough Green lies in the northwest corner of West Sussex, astride the A272 east-west main road. The River Arun and its flood plain to the east and the heavily wooded high ground to the west maintain the essentially rural nature of the Parish and its separation from the commercial and residential development in Billingshurst and Petworth. Wisborough Green is a typical English village with a village green, public houses, pond, Church, village shop and Post Office in the centre of the village.

Historically the village has medieval and earlier origins. It is dominated by its Church on the village’s high ground; St Peter ad Vincula is likely to have started life as a fortified structure commanding north-south lines of communication on Stane Street (Roman road) and the rivers Arun and Kird. In more recent times, the second World War saw a Canadian Division harboured in nearby Hawkhurst Court and the 1942 Dieppe raid, commemorated annually in the church and on the Green, was mounted from its requisitioned buildings and adjacent woodland.
