Angmering is a large, narrow village and civil parish between Littlehampton and Worthing in West Sussex, England. It is centred 1.5 miles (2.4 km) north of the English Channel; Worthing and Littlehampton are centred 3.5 miles (5.6 km) to the east and west respectively.
Angmering railway station is 3⁄4 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. Following the building of the Bramley Green development, Angmering is the most populous settlement in the Arundel and South Downs Parliamentary Constituency.
The village's name is of an old Saxon form, meaning "the people of Angenmaer".
The village was the birthplace of 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.
