Loxwood, West Sussex
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Loxwood was for some years the home of the Society of Dependents, or Cokelers, a small Christian sect founded by John Sirgood. The name 'Cockelers' refers to the fact that members of the sect drank cocoa instead of alcohol.
The church of St. John the Baptist dates to about 1900, and is built on the site of a 15th-century chapel.
