Climping (also spelt Clymping) is a village and civil parish containing agricultural and natural sandy land in the Arun District of West Sussex, England. The parish also contains the coastal hamlet of Atherington. It is three miles (5 km) west of Littlehampton, just north of the A259 road.
Climping village hall was designed in 1930s by architect Herbert Collins
A windmill here predates the mid-18th century and survives, unused for wind power, bereft of its sails but kept up and lived in.
A bit of history of Climping
Some time after 1102 Séez Abbey in Normandy established a cell or grange at Atherington for a monk to act as bailiff of the abbey’s lands near Littlehampton. The bailiff was occasionally referred to as a prior and the grange as Atherington Priory. At the suppression of alien houses in around 1415 by Henry V the confiscated monastic properties of Atherington were given to Syon Abbey. The site, also known as Bailiffscourt, retains the 13th-century chapel, now used as a sanctuary for the ashes of the Moynes family. There are also still traces of a moat. (The other buildings on the site are not genuinely mediaeval).
