Living in Yapton

Yapton is a rural village and civil parish in the Arun District of West Sussex. Yapton is one of the Six Villages (the others are Walberton Barnham, Fontwell, Westergate and Eastergate) as they are referred to locally, which lie between Arundel and Chichester. Close to the beautiful and historic town of Arundel, the small village of Yapton recorded a population of 3,571 in the 2011 census.

Yapton is known locally as the village which “never closes its doors” in reference to its historic role in the 18 th century as a refuge for smugglers on the run from the authorities as they brought their contraband ashore from the neighbouring beaches. Local residents would quietly leave their doors unlocked at night so that smugglers could hide out if pursued.

Lying on the coastal plain south west of Arundel, the village is surrounded by historic buildings and close by is the beautiful beach at Climping. In the Spring you can enjoy Yapton Beerex, the annual real ale festival organised by West Sussex CAMRA which takes place in Yapton Village Hall. Alternatively, take a trip to Fontwell racecourse nearby for some fantastic entertainment all year round.

Not only does Yapton provide attractions such as Bilsham Manor built in the 17 th century and St Mary’s church, parts of which date back to A.D. 1180, it is also a well-served village with local shops and amenities, including a pub (The Maypole Inn), a restaurant and a local school, Yapton CE Primary School.

Yapton is close to several stations, including Littlehampton, Barnham and Ford, which are within easy reach via bus or car. They offer mainline trains to London Victoria, taking between 60 and 90 minutes.
