Warnham is a village and civil parish in the Horsham district of West Sussexmarker, Englandmarker. The village is some three kilometres (2 miles) north west of central Horshammarker to the west of the A24 road. Other named settlements within the parish include the hamlets of Goose Green, Kingsfold and Winterfold as well as parts of Strood Green and Rowhook.

The parish has a land area of 1980 hectares (4892 acres). In the 2001 census 1958 people lived in 784 households, of whom 935 were economically active.

The Anglican Parish Church, dedicated to St. Margaret was built in the 14th Century, but contains substantial later additions. The poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, born two miles from Warnham at Field Place, a broad-fronted country house set on an estate/working farm, was baptised there in 1792 and later rode every day for lessons with Reverend Edwards, the church vicar. In addition it houses monuments belonging to a number of influential Sussex families, among them the Carylls, the Lucases and the Shelleys.

Warnham has a number of shops, including a village store and butcher, two pubs The Sussex Oak and The Greets Inn and a railway stationmarker nearly a mile away from the village, on the Sutton & Mole Valley Lines.

Warnham railway stationmarker was built primarily for the brick works, which had some sidings until recently. It only offers a passenger service during peak times. The level crossing is now permanently closed.
