A small village in the West Sussex Weald, full of charming cottages arranged around the historic church of St Peter. Within the church is a superb funerary brass of Thomas Nelond, Prior of Lewes, who died c. 1420. The grave canopy is an elaborate affair stretching over 10 feet in length.
Cowfold was once a thriving centre of the iron industry, due to an abundant supply of timber for smelting. Nearby is is St Hughs Charterhouse, a modern Carthusian monastery founded in the late Victorian period.
