Pulborough is set beside the confluence of the river Arun and the river Rother and first came to prominence as a settlement in Roman times. For more than 4 centuries it was the most extensive Roman settlement north of the South Downs. Stane Street – the Roman road from Regnum to Londinium – passes through Pulborough.
Today, Pulborough has a population of approximately 5,000 people and has a vibrant community with many thriving societies and organisations.
The nearby RSPB Pulborough Brook Nature Reserve, which is in the middle of the Arun valley flood plain, attracts thousands of wild ducks and other water birds every autumn and winter.
Every July Pulborough hosts the famous 12 hour Lawn Mower Race.
