Nestled in its own benign ecosystem on the sunny West Sussex coast in Felpham, Summerley Private Estate is home to 350 families. Built mainly in the 1920s and 1930s the houses are substantial and of individual design.

As part of the improvement to the Estate entrance, the road is to be re-surfaced on Wednesday 26th October. There will be very limited ingress/egress during the day because of this work and the size of the machines involved. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained but all residents and members are asked to try to minimise vehicle movements on this day. If vehicles must enter or leave the Estate could you please try to arrange this happens either early in the morning (before 07:30) or later in the evening.

The main area of work will be from Summerley Lane to the junction of Limmer Lane/Crossbush Road. A further small section of road between Bramfield  Road and Limmard Way will be re-surfaced but a diversion will be put in place for this work.

We thank you for your understanding and assistance for the duration of this improvement work.

The English Channel is at our doorstep. Well not quite – a 1960s sea defence project sees to that – but the sea is an important facility. Two ramps allow residents to launch light boats.

The beach is great for children and for dog walkers. The sea is shallow and good for swimming – although this IS England and it’s not Mediterranean temperature. Yet. The coastal path west is tarmac and provides a good car-free walk all the way to Bognor Regis. To the east it is unpaved but provides a pleasant walk all the way to the River Arun at Littlehampton.

The South Downs are about 10 miles to the north and provide many attractive walks and many even more attractive pubs as well as features such as ancient trails, ancient yews, Goodwood, archaeological digs, the Amberley Museum and much more. This beautiful part of southern England is a major benefit of West Sussex life.
