The local area guide to living in Pevensey

Pevensey is a small historic village on the southern coast of England in the county of East Sussex, one mile inland from Pevensey Bay. It was here that, after crossing the English Channel from Normandy, France, William the Conqueror landed in 1066 and began his invasion of England. Close to the Lullington Heath National Nature Reserve, the easternmost segment of the South Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and with its own small nature reserve, Pevensey is well situated for exploring the lovely countryside of the English South.

Pevensey is also the area’s civil parish and includes the main village, Pevensey Bay, and Pevensey Levels, a twelve-kilometre stretch of natural reserve and farmland. Some of the village’s ancient buildings include the East Gate of Pevensey Castle (a Norman castle managed by English Heritage), The Courthouse (the smallest town hall in England) and St Nicolas, a very early English Church. The resort village of Pevensey Bay has a notably large retired community. There are many species of wildlife and native plants in the area, including a variety of seabirds.

Pevensey’s living environment has been ranked as better than 91% of all areas in England according to the IMD, though it is only better than 59% of areas of England overall, once factors such as Employment and Education are accounted for, which likely explains the high number of retirees in the area.

Information about the local residents

Pevensey’s population is approximately 4,000, and most residents are in the 55-64 and 65-74 Adult Life stages. The population is a mix of families, working adults and retired persons.

Nearly half of the population is employed, and the most common industries of employment are Human Health and Social Work, Wholesale and Retail Trade, Construction, and Education. The most common Occupations are Skilled Trades, Associate Professional and Technical, and Administrative and Secretarial. Professionals and Managers, Directors and Senior Officials tie for the fourth most common Occupation groups.

Nearby schools

Pevensey has its own primary school within the village borders, Pevensey and Westham C of E Primary School. Just west of Pevensey Castle, on the High Street, it is fairly central in the town and, importantly, is one of the best performing schools in the area. At Key Stage 2, 90% of pupils achieve at least level 4 in reading, writing and maths. Towards Eastbourne and slightly further afield, however, there are plenty of options, with some 34 primary schools in a five-mile radius of the village.

In the same distance, there are around 12 secondary schools. The nearest is The Bishop Bell Church of England Mathematics and Computing Specialist School in Eastbourne, about 1.7 miles away, but Causeway School and Eastbourne Academy are other secondary options in Eastbourne, both only slightly further across town. Hazel Court School is another in Eastbourne, only two miles away, but it is quite small with only 88 pupils. Eastbourne College is a well-performing secondary through sixth form that’s nearby, while Sussex Downs College is another sixth form option and Gildredge House is a mainstream free school covering ages 4-19.

Getting around

Pevensey is served by Southern Rail at Pevensey Bay, and Pevensey and Westham rail stations on the East Coastway Line. Pevensey Bay station is only a 10-15 minutes walking distance from Pevensey High Street, but services only run Monday to Friday. These include three trains a day towards Eastbourne and Brighton, and five trains a day toward Hastings and Ashford International.

Several bus services run to Eastbourne, Hastings and Battle, and National Express coaches travel to stops in both the village and the bay. Road connections are very good, as Pevensey lies along the main southern coastal road. The village is only five miles from Eastbourne, Gatwick Airport is about 42 miles away via the A22, and London is reached by train in 2 hours 20 minutes with a few changes.

Local shops

There are several pubs, restaurants, cafés and coffee shops in the village along the High Street, and a short drive away in Eastbourne there are a wide range of shops, supermarkets and amenities, including golf clubs, football clubs, the Langney Shopping Centre, restaurants, pubs and more. The Langney Shopping Centre in central Eastbourne carries high street fashion and lifestyle names, and hosts markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

The popular beachfront holiday and retirement village Pevensey Bay is complete with a convenience store, off-license, bakery, chemist, library, medical centre and a small range of restaurants, inns and cafes.
