Thus, courts of justice would have been held at the manor, and villagers were exempt from tolls and ordinary taxation in other parishes.
Near the parish church of St Peter is an ancient holy well (also dedicated to St Peter) which is reputed to possess healing properties. This was a place of pilgrimage during the medieval period, as people came to bathe their eyes in the waters of the well, in the belief that this would heal vision problems. As for the church itself, it is a 13th-century building, with a west tower and a 14th-century chancel.
Only three miles distant is the medieval manor of Petworth House, which possesses a superb collection of art.
