Mannings Heath is a village in the Horsham District of West Sussex, England, on the A281 a few miles south-east of the town of Horsham.[1] It lies in the civil parish of Nuthurst.

Mannings Heath has an Anglican church dedicated to The Good Shepherd, built in 1845, a pub, the Dun Horse Inn and golf course (Mannings Heath Golf Club).

The village experienced a period of expansion after 1945, but development of the local area has been sympathetic to the original character of the village.[1] Several 17th-century buildings and a few 18th-century buildings survive.

Notable inhabitants[edit]

Notable inhabitants include Norman Tebbit, Baron Tebbit of Chingford (a Cabinet minister in the Thatcher government), and famous television and film actor Peter Vaughan with his actress wife, Lilias Walker.
