Location Map

The building from which Lancing Manor gets its name was demolished during 1972. Its origins appear to date back to the early 1600's, at which time it was a small house. Subsequent extensions and alterations built it into the Manor house that finally met its end nearly 400 years later. Lancing Manor Leisure centre now occupies the site.

Although adjacent to the A27, and very near central Lancing, the park is a beautiful location, and has many mature trees, although many were sadly destroyed in the hurricane of 1987. There is an arboretum in the north of the park which was planted afterwards as a tribute to Alfred Snowden, who died that year.

The park is home to Lancing Manor Cricket Club, and also sports a bowling green. There is a children's play area, and substantial open space. There is also a path through to Lancing Ring.

The photograph below is taken from the North-east corner of the park. Behind is the path to Lancing Ring. On the right is the Leisure Centre, and the building on the left, which is the former caretaker's bungalow, now houses Lancing's Noah's Ark Nursery. Some of the mature trees of the park are evident in this view.

The arboretum mentioned above, is to the right of where the previous picture was taken.
