History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The most interesting historic building in Henfield is the intriguingly named Cat House; a lovely 16th-century thatched cottage named for the row of wrought iron cats who prowl beneath the overhanging thatch-eaves.
The story goes that the owner of the cottage had a canary who was killed by the vicar's cat. The canary's grieving owner put cats all about the cottage so that the vicar who see them every time he passed!
A small museum of local life is located on Coopers Way.
