Ringmer is a village and civil parish[1] in the Lewes District of East Sussex, England. The village is located three miles (4.8km) east of Lewes.

There has been human habitation there since at least Roman times. The village church, dedicated to St Mary, was built probably in the 13th century.

The village green is home to the local Cricket club, play area for children and duck pond.

Ringmer also has two schools, Ringmer Primary School for ages 4-11 and Ringmer Community College for students aged 11-16. Ringmer Community College also houses the local swimming pool which is run by Freedom Leisure.

The symbol of Ringmer is a tortoise named Timothy, after the tortoise that the naturalist Gilbert White carried back to Selborne in Hampshire in 1780. White’s aunt Rebecca Snooke lived in Delves House where Timothy, surprisingly a female tortoise, had the run of the courtyard garden. Timothy died in 1794, one year after Gilbert White.

Very nearby is the Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum, which includes the following attractions:

  • Motor Museum of old cars
  • Large ponds full of native and exotic ducks, geese and flamingoes
  • Café
  • Gift shop
  • Miniature railway that one can ride on
  • Forest which, every year, holds a woodland crafts festival

Ringmer is one of the largest villages in the south of England. Ringmer could nearly be classed as a small town.
