Stopham is a hamlet and civil parish in the District of Chichester in West Sussex, England located 2 kilometres (1.4 miles) west of Pulborough on the A283 road.

The parish has a land area of 353.9 hectares (874 acres). In the 2001 census 87 people lived in 39 households, of whom 40 were economically active.

Stopham has a Saxon Anglican church, dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin, located a few hundred metres north of the A283 road together with an ancient Manor house. The parish is bounded to the east by the River Arun, crossed by Stopham bridge built in 1423. The River Rother forms the southern boundary of the parish from its confluence with the Arun below Stopham Bridge. In the 1790s the Rother was made navigable to Midhurst beginning with a canal cut from the Arun between the Rother and the A283 road. The first lock was built in the grounds of Stopham House. Stopham or Stopeham is recorded in the Domesday Book and has belonged to the same family, the Bartletts or Barttelots since the Norman Conquest. Since 1875 they have been baronets.
