Angmering is a large village and civil parish between Littlehampton and Worthing in West Sussex, England. It is located approximately two miles (3 km) north of the English Channel; Worthing and Littlehampton are about four miles (6 km) to the east and west respectively.
Angmering railway station is ¾ mile away from the village centre straddling the boundaries of Angmering and East Preston.
The village has a 12th-century church (St Margaret's, re-built by Samuel Sanders Teulon in 1852, and reordered[clarification needed] in 2009), three schools, several small shops, a post office and many historic houses from the 15th century onwards. It is in a semi-rural area with many farms. With the building of the Bramley Green development, the population in 2005 is close to 8000, the largest centre of population in the Arundel and South Downs Parliamentary Constituency.
The village's name is of an old Saxon form, meaning "the followers or dependents of Angenmaer".
The village was the birthplace of 'black' Tom Oliver, who, after adding an l to his name to become Olliver, became the winning rider of the 1842, 1843 and 1853 Grand Nationals. Impresario Lord Bernard Delfont and record producer Norman Newell have lived in Angmering. Portrait artist Juliet Pannett and her family lived in Angmering from the mid-1960s.
