Barnham is a semi-rural village and civil parish in the Arun district of West Sussex, England, centred about five miles (8 km) north of Bognor Regis.

The cattle market (founded in 1890 but now long gone) was, in its heyday, considered to be one of the most important in Sussex for both cattle and cereals.

In the 20th century this area, on alluvial soils, was important for market gardening; There are many large, industrial-sized greenhouses in the area, although very few within the parish boundary.

St Mary's Church represents the heart of 'Old Barnham', but when the railway station and junction for Bognor Regis were built approximately one mile north of the church, the focus of the village shifted as businesses built premises adjacent to the station and this was followed by housing developments centred on this location.

Barnham is mentioned in the Domesday Book and retains some of its rich agricultural history, having had very little woodland for many centuries, and gently rolling cereal fields and pasture instead.

West Sussex County Council’s summer grass cutting operation is in full swing.

Barnham Heath is a Site of Special Scientific Interest located to the east of the village. The site, which is 76.5 hectares (189 acres) in size, is an area of Breckland heathland with a range of grassland and scrub habitats.[9] It is an important bird habitat, including for the protected stone curlew.[9] Land surrounding the village also forms part of the Breckland Farmland and Breckland Forest SSSIs as well as the Barnham Little Heath and Thetford Heaths SSSI.

West Barnham forms a semi-rural conurbation with Barnham (the main settlement in the civil parish of Eastergate - see below) which had 3,107 people living in it 2001. As with many other such villages in the south-east of England just outside the Metropolitan Green Belt with accessible to centres of employment and resorts for the retired, accepted construction in the early part of the 21st century has included retirement apartments and other residential expansion.

Another public house served the village from the early 20th century until 2010: The Barnham Bridge Inn which closed when the brewery was taken into administration. In July 2014, work commenced to turn the premises into a supermarket.

Part of the Portsmouth-Arundel Canal (opened in 1823 but now disused and filled in) is visible to the SE of the village, including remains of the locks and pivots used for the locking mechanisms.

From 1808 to 1814, Barnham was the site of a station in the shutter telegraph chain which connected the Admiralty in London to its naval ships in the port of Great Yarmouth. Barnham railway station was on the Thetford to Bury St Edmunds line but closed in 1960. Barnham Windmill was a three storey tower mill in the village built in 1821. It has been converted to residential accommodation.

Barnham, as a person, may refer to:

The parish church, dedicated to St Mary, was given to the Abbey of Lessay in Normandy in 1105 and later passed to Boxgrove Priory.[4] There is an elaborate carved rectangular font of Sussex marble.[5] The white wooden tower was once regarded as an important aid to shipping in the English Channel.


We are a small rural parish of about 550 properties. The settlement is in the north east of the parish and, with most of Eastergate parish, forms the village of Barnham. An ancient settlement of Berneham was recorded in the Domesday Book with a mill and  the Church of St Mary the Virgin. With the arrival of the railway in the nineteenth century and subsequent development of the glasshouse industry the village of Barnham grew around the railway station.
