Wander round Steyning and admire the historic buildings

Steyning was founded by Saint Cuthman (c750AD), and is rich in history. It was once a port on the then navigable estuary of the River Adur and was prized by the Normans. With over 125 listed buildings, you can amble through the High Street and small lanes and see stunning examples of Medieval, Tudor, Stuart and Georgian architecture showing how important Steyning was as a trading centre.

The Fountain Inn - 'A shining example of a classic English pub'!

The Fountain is delightfully situated in the village of Ashurst, just a short drive from Steyning. Dating from the 16th century - it is complete with ancient flagstones, oak floors and inglenook fireplaces. There is always a wonderful log fire in winter!

They offer lunch and supper, a small but interesting range of platters and sandwiches, bar snacks to graze on and a children's menu. All available 12 noon until 9.30pm - seven days a week. Breakfast is served on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

The Fountain is 'Cask Marque' accredited, so expect a well-kept range of ales which may vary from week to week but usually includes an offering from Sussex brewer Harveys. An interesting wine list includes a range of up to eight reds and eight whites by the glass or carafe.

Places to visit in Winter?

I particularly recommend The Royal Pavilion: Open all year apart from Christmas Day.

The Pavilion is an exotic palace in the centre of Brighton with a colourful history.

Built as a seaside pleasure palace for King George IV, this historic house mixes Regency grandeur with the visual style of India and China.

A Saxon Tower and Unique Spire at St Mary's Church!

There’s been a church at Sompting on the edge of the South Downs since before the Norman conquest of the 11th century. The oldest part of the building is the Saxon Tower, which has stonework that has been dated as pre-1000 AD.

C 9th Saxons built wooden framed Church on current site of St Mary’s Church.

A.D 960 Saxons replaced wooden church with flint church, including Tower, Nave and Chancel.

A.D 1020 Saxons extended flint tower to form unique Rheinish Helm (Rhineland Helmet) the earliest example of this type of tower in England

A.D 1080 Normans re-built Nave and Chancel along earlier Saxon foundations.

Open daily all year from 10 to 4. You can find the church in Church Lane, Sompting, BN15 0AZ. A 12 minute drive from Steyning over the South Downs.
