Its church dates back to the 13th century.

"The Cat House" in Henfield was, at one time, was owned by a Bob Ward.

The story goes that Bob's canary was killed by a cat - so he put images of a cat with a bird in its claws around the house as a constant reminder to the cat's owner (Canon Woodard) that it was his cat that killed the canary).
