Ditchling is a delightful village found in the district of Lewes in East Sussex. The roots of Ditchling stretch far back - it was known as 'Dicelinga' in 765AD and was once owned by King Alfred. There were 150 homes, a church and mill recorded in the Domesday Book. Ditchling has been an epicentre for nonconformist Christianity and today it boasts two pubs, some shops, and community groups and societies. Famous residents in the village have included Dame Vera Lynn, musician Herbie Flower, Sir Donald Sinden, writer Peter James and cartoonist Raymond Briggs of 'The Snowman' fame.

Other residents are respectable in their own right, although they may not be celebrities as such, and they inhabit a bustling network of streets in Ditchling. Community life centres around High Street, South Street, North End and East End Lane, as well as the busier B2112 and B2116 but also Beacon Road and Lodge Hill lane and thereabouts.

The people of 'Dicul' settled in Ditchling in Anglo Saxon times. The village is noted as 'Dicelinga' in 765AD but King Alduuf related to a grant concerning land bordering the settlement. After King Alfred, aforementioned, owned the land, it was given to a kinsman called Osferth and then given back to the Crown under Edward the Confessor. The Domesday Book mentions the fact that Ditchling had a mill and church with 150 homes. Ditchling's history and culture still fascinates people today. The BBC produced a five-part documentary in recent years called, 'Storyville: A very English Village', produced by a local resident.
