Egdean's main feature (almost it's only feature in fact) is its church.
Egdean is a very pleasant spot though, looking south across the sweep of the Rother Valley with the rounded peaks of Duncton Down, Barlavington Down and Glatting Beacon's distinctive masts forming an impressive backdrop five miles or so to the south.
Egdean ChurchSt Bartholemew's Church at Egdean is fairly unusual for Sussex churches because it was built in the 17th century (1622 to be exact). Most of our rural churches date from the 10th to 12th centuries.
There had been a medieval church at Egdean, but it had fallen down by the time of the Reformation.
So a new church was built and a very good one it is too, with blocks of lovely old brickwork and a good setting with Egdean Copse as a backdrop, giving an air of seclusion to the church's setting.
