Clymping is a parish of 690 hectares on the south coast to the west of Littlehampton.  It is in West Sussex County Council area and within Arun District Council.   While the parish council prefers the more traditional spelling used on this website the name is often spelt "Climping" and this is the way it usually appears on maps.   In the 2001 census it had a population of 600.

It is crossed roughly east to west by the A259 Littlehampton to Bognor Road.  The other main routes in the parish are the B2233 and the B2132 going from their junctions with the A259 north-west to Yapton and northward to Ford and Arundel respectively. 

Clymping has a long and interesting history.  Fortunately the Victoria County History for Sussex Volume 5 part 1 was issued in 1997 covering the Rape of Arundel and this is available on the web.  Therefore if you click here you will be taken to the section on the parish.

You are asked to check out particularly the meeting dates and Agenda pages for the latest information on future meetings.
