Slindon, West Sussex
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The village is built around a lovely green, with a flint church occupying one side of the green.
The church is largely 12th century. Within it stands a curious monument to Sir Anthony St Leger (d 1539). The reclining figure of Sir Anthony is carved from wood, making it the only such monument in Sussex.
Near the church is the field where Sir Richard Newland is said to have laid down the rules for the modern game of cricket. Just over a mile outside the village is Denman's Garden, a four-acre garden renown for its colourful plantings.
The village stands within the National Trust's Slindon Estate, a large expanse of downland split with narrow valleys. Paths lead across the estate, providing pleasant walking country, with excellent views over the downland. National Trust booklets detail walking paths for visitors.
