Lavant is a civil parish in the Chichester district of West Sussex, England, just north of Chichester. It is made up of three villages, Mid Lavant and East Lavant together with the much smaller West Lavant, and takes its name from the River Lavant which flows from East Dean. East Lavant has a collection of historic cottages and a public house.[2]

The A286 road between Chichester and Midhurst runs through the parish.

The villages were served by a station on the railway line that ran between Chichester and Midhurst, but this closed in stages between 1931 and 1991.


Kingley Vale lies on the border of the parish which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a National Nature Reserve. It is noted for its Yew woodlands.[3] The site is also known for its archaeological interest including Bronze Age and Roman earthworks, cross dykes, a camp and a field system.
