The local area guide to living in Lingfield

10 miles east of Gatwick Airport, 27 miles south of central London and minutes away from the A22, lies Lingfield, a village, civil parish and post town. This historic town belongs to the Tandridge district of Surrey in south-east England.

If you wish to live amongst medieval landmarks, Lingfield is the place to be! It’s home to a smorgasbord of Grade 1 and Grade 2 listed buildings. Each chronicling the storied history of this charming parish. The Church of St Peter and St Paul is one such monument boasting Grade 1 status and retains many of its architecturally historic features, and it’s certainly a sight to behold!

Life in Lingfield is quite a simple affair. It offers the rural village life most city dwellers seek. Gorgeous houses provide plenty of space, the cost of living is lower and central hubs can be reached within a matter of moments. With such attractive qualities, it’s no wonder that Lingfield is quite hard to resist!

Information about the local residents

Due to its geographic location, most mornings typically see Lingfield empty out as commuters travel to the neighbouring settlements of East Grinstead, Crawley and Guildford, or even further afield (London and Brighton) for work.

When the 2011 Census was conducted, it found that 4,467 individuals call Lingfield home. This population is split into 1,822 households – most of which are owned outright or with a mortgage. 47% of this population are also in full-time employment, either working in the technical, skilled trade, service or professional sector. There are also a number of families present as well as retirees, signalling that Lingfield is the ideal haven for all ages.

Nearby schools

It’s understandable that parents want the best for their children. So, when looking for a potential place to relocate to, schooling is, of course, a pivotal concern. Fortunately, the three schools available in Lingfield are all brilliant.

Lingfield Primary School received the accolade of ‘Good’ from Ofsted back in 2012. The institute boasts excellent pupil attainments (89% of students achieve Level 4 or above in maths, reading and writing), mostly thanks to the effective teaching standards and the supportive learning environment.

Lingfield Notre Dame (an independent school) and St Piers (a specialist school for those with Epilepsy) both offer primary, secondary and post 16 education. Both have exceptional educational facilities and thoroughly support pupils at every stage. Lingfield, in particular, boasts excellent pupil attainments as 100% of its pupils achieve 3 or more A- levels.

If you prefer to send your child to a public institute, numerous secondary and post 16 options can be found in East Grinstead and the adjoining neighbourhoods. Two of note include Imberhorne and Sackville School.

Getting around

If you decide to move to Lingfield, you’ll be graced with brilliant transport networks - be it road, rail or even air.

Frequent and convenient bus services – 281, 915, 917 and 231 - ferry locals and commuters to Crawley, East Grinstead, Tunbridge Wells and picturesque towns and villages along the way. The train, similarly, transports users to destinations such as London and Gatwick Airport in just under an hour. With such attractive proximities, it’s hardly surprising that Lingfield is a major commuter hub.

Cars are, of course, another heavily relied upon mode of transport – one that outweighs the public transportation options as most prefer the privacy and unrestrained travel that a car provides. In fact, 40% of all households own at least one car and 3% possess two cars.

Local shops

The ancient parish doesn’t have much in the way of amenities. Though it is home to quaint independent stores and charming pubs, ones you’ll soon become a regular of.

The Bridge Farm Shop and Costcutter will quickly become your port of call for any food-related purchases. However, you will most likely find yourself making the journey to East Grinstead when you’re missing certain amenities. This town is home to a number of supermarkets, high street stores and shopping centres.
