About the area
An incredibly sought after area, Wannock sits below the South Downs between the villages of Polegate and Jevington. Easy walking distance from Wannock Avenue is ‘The Triangle’ which is the hub of the local community, offering a local surgery and chemists, green grocer, butcher, co-op and post office, hairdressers and the local pub. There are decent schools for all ages also within walking distance, making this location equally suited to families.

The area was once known for its walnut groves and some house gardens still contain walnut trees. There were once two tea gardens in Wannock which were popular with coach parties visiting from nearby Eastbourne, and a dance hall stood on stilts over the local beauty spot of Wannock Glen. Wannock is mentioned in the Domesday Book and in a Napoleonic assessment/inventory of the British south coast defences. There is a manor; Wannock Place, two medieval cottages and a cottage which was a watermill. One medieval cottage is called 'Stream Cottage', the other mediaeval cottage is owned by Nigel Waterson, former local MP.
