Itchingfield, Sussex

Historical Description

Itchingfield, a village and a parish in Sussex. The village stands 1 mile W of a junction of railways, 3 miles from Slinfold station on the L.B. & S.C.R., and 4 SW by W of Horsham, and it is connected with the hamlet of Barn's Green. Post town, Horsham. The parish includes both the village and the hamlet, and comprises 2519 acres; population, 492. A dense forest was around the parsonage in the early part of the 18th century, and gave refuge to some of the persons attainted for the Scotch rebellion of 1745. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Chichester; tithes commuted at £408 with residence. The church is Saxon or Early Norman, has a rude low timber tower, seemingly of the Late Decorated period, and contains a handsome modern font; the whole building was very thoroughly restored in 1866. There is a Congregational chapel at Barn's Green.
