About Henfield

Henfield is a thriving market village with unique shops, old inns and historical and quirky houses. A network of twittens and character streets criss-cross the village, allowing for interesting walks and exploring the village. Visit the museum in the Henfield Hall, or the vibrant high street for eateries, farm shops and boutiques. Henfield Common is a short walk from the high street and offers an expanse of meadows and grassland, or walk along the Downs Link Bridleway.
