About Edburton

A Rural Parish

Part of the parish of Upper Beeding, Edbuton is a tiny spot nestled in the South Downs with a population of 83.   Close by to the beauty spot of Devils Dyke, it commands some glorious views and is an ideal area to enjoy walking & cycling or just sitting and relaxing.  By far the oldest building in the village is St Andrew’s Church which is circa 13th century and believed to have originally been founded by Edburga, daughter of King Alfred, in C940.  Her name may also have had something to do with the origin of the village name of Edburton.      It is thought that back in the Middle Ages Edburton was a much larger and more important area;  now it maybe smaller but it certainly is both peaceful and beautiful.
