An Introduction To The Area

May’s – The Village Agent operates on the coastal strip

either side of Bognor Regis incorporating the seaside

villages of Felpham, Middleton-on-Sea, Elmer, Aldwick,

Pagham, plus Rose Green and Nyetimber.

Bognor Regis started life as a small fishing village known

as Bucgan - Ora, but developed over the years into the

popular seaside resort of Bognor. The ‘Regis’ was added in

1929 in gratitude after the convalescence of King George V

in the area.

Since that time, Bognor has developed the residential

element of its seafront with a number of apartment

complexes and in recent months, a group has been formed

with the idea of restoring the Pier to its former glory.

Apart from the usual array of national retail outlets, Bognor

still has a number of smaller independents operating in the

town centre. The railway station heads north to London

Victoria, whilst the road links provide access to the varied

centres of Chichester, Worthing, Brighton and Portsmouth.

The villages flanking Bognor all have their own distinct

identities ranging from the ‘kiss me quick’ and candy

floss of the Pagham seafront, to the rather more genteel

residential estates found in Felpham, Middleton and

Aldwick, where in Felpham amongst the thatched cottages

and fields, the poet and mystic William Blake briefly made

his home and wrote ‘Away to sweet Felpham, for Heaven

is there.’

Something for everyone. Safe bathing facilities on the coast.

Shopping in the larger city centres and easy access to the

South Downs National Park with its seemingly boundless

walks and gallops. Plus, of course, Glorious Goodwood and

associated activities. All great reasons for moving into and

around the areas covered by May’s – The Village Agents.
