This old village in East Sussex lies on edge of the South Downs near Brighton and was where the sculptor Eric Gill established a Roman Catholic arts and crafts community in the 1920's.

A local museum has a permanent collection of his calligraphy designs and woodcuts.

In the village is 16th century Wings Place, given by Henry V111 to Anne of Cleves as part of their divorce settlement.

Nearby is the 813ft Ditchling Beacon, which affords breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside.
