Thatched Cottage, Singleton
A small village in the South Downs, by the River Lavant. Singleton dates to at least the late Saxon period, when the manor was owned by Earl Godwin of Wessex, father of King Harold. The parish church dates to the Saxon period, with several windows surviving from that time.

Within the Saxon nave is a grandiose monument to Thomas Johnson, huntsman to the Duke of Richmond, erected by his patron. Just outside Singleton is the Drover's Estate, once part of a deer park owned by the Earls of Arundel. Here you will find a network of paths leading across a mix of pasture and woodland, making for an enjoyable outing.

Most people come to to the Singleton area to visit the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum. This is one of the most innovative museums of its time, where you will fond over 30 historic buildings, salvaged from destruction and re-erected here to give you a tangible feel for English heritage.
