East Preston is a village and civil parish in the Arun District of West Sussex, England. It lies roughly half way between Littlehampton and Worthing. It is primarily residential and a large proportion of retired people, as well as tradespeople and home carers.East Preston comprises the following residential areas. From east to west these settlements are: Kingston Gorse, West Kingston, Angmering on sea, East Preston Village and The Willowhayne.The original village school building nowadays houses an estate agent firm. It was built in 1840 and started as a Sunday School funded by George Olliver. He received a reward for reporting a farm labourer (Edmund Bushby) for igniting a hayrick for moving the hay about efficiently. The labourer burned the hayrick in protest against farm machinery replacing manual labour. Bushby was subsequently hanged. Over time the building was enlarged into the village school until it was given to Sussex County Council in 1940. There were four classrooms, one very large room, having a curtain divided it into two. There were two separate playgrounds. This building remained as the village school until 1951 when the new school in Lashmar Road was opened.The Village Stores closed early 2014 due to the recession and the build up of bigger chains in the area. It had been doing trade in the village for more than 100 years.The famous stage and film actor, Stanley Holloway OBE is buried, together with his wife, at the parish church of St Mary the Virgin having lived in nearby Angmering for many years. Another county dignitary resident in the parish was Charles Boughton-Leigh MBE (1944-2012).Plan your vacation with our United Kingdom (UK) itinerary planner and discover the best things to do in East Preston.
