And just as Charlton is slightly quieter than Singleton, so East Dean is a little sleepier than Charlton.
In winter East Dean almost feels remote - the road eastwards to Droke, the home of Mountain Boarding in Sussex, is muddy and pot-holed and it seems a long way to the A283 - the Chichester to Petworth road.
Never fear, however, East Dean has a really good pub - albeit a smart one - in the Star and Garter (aka for a time as the Hurdlemakers).
It's also a good place to start a walk up to Crown Tegleaze - one of the highest points along the South Down Way, overlooking East Lavington to to the north. It's a drag of around 3.5 kilometres to the top.
There are good walks to the south too, through Chiseldown, East Dean Park and Charlton Park and around Goodwood Racecourse.
The village pond, right in the centre of the village, is one of the two sources of the River Lavant - the other is just north of Cucumber Farm 4 kilometres to the west, near Singleton.
All Saints Church, East Dean is a Norman church with a resolute looking crenellated square tower, set on the lower slopes of Green Hill.
