  An ancient woolen centre and stagecoach town, busy Petersfield lies on the banks of the River Rother, a curious mixture of the old and new set within glorious, rural surroundings.

The market centre has a statue of William III while nearby, in the picturesque Queen Elizabeth Forest, Butser Ancient Farm is a ‘living museum’ consisting of a re-created prehistoric farm.
