Climping (also spelt Clymping) is a village and civil parish containing agricultural and natural sandy land in the Arun District of West Sussex, England. The parish also contains the coastal hamlet of Atherington. It is three miles (5 km) west of Littlehampton, just north of the A259 road.
A windmill here predates the mid-18th century and survives, unused for wind power, bereft of its sails but kept up and lived in.
