West Lavington is a village and civil parish on the edge of Midhurst in the Chichester district of West Sussex, England. It contains a small village primary school and the church of St Mary Magdalene. The church was constructed for Henry Edward Manning who was at the time rector of Woolavington, now East Lavington, with West Lavington forming a detached portion of that parish until 1851. The churchyard contains the grave of Richard Cobden although he lived in the neighbouring parish of Heyshott.

In the 2001 census there were 111 households with a total population of 298 of whom 115 were economically active.
