West Burton is a small village in the Chichester district of West Sussex, England. It lies on the Bignor to Bury road 4.5 miles (7.2 km) southwest of Pulborough. It is one of a string of Saxon settlements at the foot of the South Downs escarpment where springs from the chalk strata provided clean reliable water supply.
