Westham


Westham Pond

The village of Westham in East Sussex lies adjacent to the village of Pevensey and about 5 miles from the seaside town of Eastbourne.  It's name is derived from being a hamlet to the west of Pevensey Castle and is recorded in the Domesday Book. Pevensey and Westham, the village train station is served by regular trains between Brighton and Hastings to Ashford. 

Beside the Tudor houses stretching  along the high street from the castle sits the Church of St Mary the Virgin which is thought to be the first Norman church in England. The tranquil Westham Pond sits off the High Street and is home to swans and a variety of ducks. Peelings Lane, a footpath not far from the pond leads to Stone Cross and its historic windmill.
