Lancing is a beautiful and extra-large village that nestles between Worthing and Shoreham-by-Sea on the gentle slopes of the South Downs providing a beutiful backdrop with the English Channel in front, as far as one can see.
Today, there are many attractive places of interest in the vicinity including a variety of walks that lead up onto the slopes of the South Downs. The best known place of interest is Lancing Ring which lies to the north of the village at 109 metres above sea level.
It is an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ and a designated nature reserve. Fragments of a Roman temple and shrine were discovered there in 1828. Excavations have revealed that the temple was part of a 12 acre Roman site in the vicinity. Lancing College Chapel is another popular place to visit and is situated on the western side of the Adur Valley.
