on the edge of the South Downs National Park, Wisborough Green exceeds all
expectations of village life.
am a relative newcomer, (not quite four years) to this vibrant, inclusive and
thriving community and yet I cannot imagine living more happily anywhere
else. There really is something for
the heart of the village the green hosts numerous events and sporting
activities. The familiar sounds of summer pervade the village as the clatter of
wickets and, “howzats” ring out! Take a
cup of tea from the café opposite the green or a beer from The Cricketers or
Three Crowns pubs and it’s a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Then there’s the
roar of the hot air balloon burners at sunset or sunrise as they set off across
the countryside and the whoops of delight from children enjoying the Annual
Summer Fair. Later in the year the less
dulcet tones of the football players and supporters’ cheers fill the autumn
are clubs and societies to entertain and educate us all! From Art to History and Horticulture, Short
Mat Bowls to Womens Institute and Wildlife, you can even learn to fly a
Spitfire in the village Spitfire Simulator Club!.
members of the village are well looked after with a baby and toddler group,
rising fives and there has been a primary school in the village since Victorian
times. Indeed, Old School Cottage, see
below, was once the headmaster’s home.
And for after school there’s Fishers Farm Adventure Farm and lots of
sports on the green.
shopping needs can be found in the lovely village stores and post office with
freshly baked pastries on offer every day!
An easy commute to London from Billingshurst, the village lies along the A272 connecting it with Petworth with its lovely selection of artisan shops, cafes and restaurants and the beautiful deer park of Petworth Park. Horsham, Guildford and Chichester are within a fairly easy drive and provide all the main shopping and leisure facilities you’d expect from a major town. But for those no longer wishing to drive a Community Minibus operates regularly with trips to the shops and days out to enjoy with others.
But most of all this village offers respite from the busy lives we lead, the opportunity of making good friends and beautiful property to live in.
