This ebullient small West Sussex town lies on the banks of the River Adur and was a busy port during the Middle Ages.


Its church dates from the 12th century. According to legend, the town’s first church was erected by St. Cuthman when he stopped here in the 8th century.


Prehistoric Cissbury Ring and Chanctonbury Ring are close by and there are splendid views from atop Steyning Round Hill.
