Chiddingly is a village and civil parish in the Wealden District of the administrative county of East Sussex, within historic Sussex, some five miles northwest of Hailsham. The parish is rural in character: it includes the village of Chiddingly and a collection of hamlets: the largest of these being Muddles Green and Thunder's Hill; others being Gun Hill, Whitesmith, Golden Cross, Broomham and Upper Dicker. It covers 7sqmi of countryside. Of the more than 340 dwellings in the parish, over fifty have the word "Farm" in their postal address.GeographyThe parish is in the Low Weald. Like Rome, it is founded upon seven hills: Thunders Hill; Gun Hill; Pick Hill; Stone Hill; Scrapers Hill; Burgh Hill and Holmes Hill, the latter being on the A22 road in the south of the parish. Tributaries of the River Cuckmere flow both north and south of the village.HistoryThe presence of low-grade iron ore in the local sandstone supported Roman mining and smelting in the area.The Domesday Book of 1086 refers to Cetelingei: the final -ly of the name shows it to have had Saxon origins. The "Chiddingly Boar", found in 1999, was apparently a silver hat badge of a supporter of Richard III, probably lost or discarded in the 1480s; it is now in the British Museum There is a large number of manorial buildings in the parish, including Chiddingly Place, rebuilt c 1574 Sir John Jefferay, Chief Baron of the Exchequer in 1577; scattered remnants of its E-shaped wings remain, as the east wing, later called "The Chapel/Chapel Barn" now known as 'Jefferay House', and sections of the main range west of the demolished Great Hall.
