A village spread out over more than 3Km, with a northern settlement close to the edge of Midhurst town, and a southern part at the foot of the South Downs, where the hills rise to nearly 250m above sea level. Much of the area has traditionally been owned by the Cowdray Estate. The delightfully set St Mary’s Church, with fine views of the Downs, dates from 13th Century, although there was a much older church on the same site.
