Horam is a village, electoral ward and civil parish in the Wealden District of East Sussex, situated three miles (4.8 km) south of Heathfield. Included in the parish are the settlements of Vines Cross and Burlow.
The name of Horam was formerly spelled 'Horeham', and this spelling still appears occasionally in public records. The railway station (closed in 1965 under the Beeching Axe) was originally named 'Horeham Road'. The dialling code for Horam is still listed as 'Horam Road'.
Horam Parish Council consists of twelve members.
Horam village lies on the A267 Tunbridge Wells–Eastbourne road south of Heathfield. The area is on the slopes of the Weald: there are many headwater streams of the River Cuckmere, carving out valleys, the main one being the Waldron Ghyll (or Gill).
The village is served by Christ Church (the local Church of England church) which is found in Horebeech Lane. The present vicar is Peter-John Guy. The small church in Vines Cross was dedicated to St James but is no longer in existence.
