itchingfield

 
 
 
Itchingfield is a parish which embraces the village of that name and the village of Barns Green, a great deal larger and the centre for social activity other than that centred on the Norman church of St Nicholas of 12th century origin, but added to over the centuries.
Even more unusually interesting than the church is the adjoining priest`s house, dating from the 15th century, a resting place for itinerant priests in pre-reformation times, later an almshouse.
The population of 1,455 lives in an area of 1000 hectares.
