Beddingham, (East Sussex)

Beddingham is located on the junction of two major roads, the A26 from London to Newhaven and the A27 south coast road.

Owing to low populations, the parish was joined with Glynde shortly after the Second World War.

Between 1912 and 1919 Viginia Woolf spent holidays and weekends at Asham House in the parish which stood just off the road near the village. The house was demolished, despite a Grade II listing, in 1994 by the owners of the surrounding refuse tip.

A Roman Villa was excavated between 1987 and 1992 by David Rudling who determined it was occupied from the late first century AD until the mid fourth century.

The church was originally wooden, the present building has been heavily altered over the centuries since the Norman church constructed of local flint was erected.
