The Midhurst Society aims to preserve, protect and improve local features of historic or community interest. It promotes high standards of planning and architecture. In liaison with public authorities, it seeks to enhance the local environment and amenities.  Above all, we strive to make Midhurst a better place to live, work and enjoy.

A biannual magazine "Midhurst Magazine" is published to encourage interest in our past, present and future - not only in Midhurst but also in our associated villages: Bepton, Cocking, Easebourne, Elsted, Heyshott, Lodsworth, Stedham, Iping, Trotton, Chithurst, West Lavington and Woolbeding.
