Storrington has recently developed into a small thriving town serving as a main shopping centre for the surrounding area.
One of the communities mentioned in the Domesday Survey, it was then said to contain two mills and a church, but the mills no longer exist.
The church of St Mary the Virgin was built in the 11th century. Storrington also has the distinction of being a Roman Catholic centre, with a priory, church and school.
The town has two ponds. The old Mill Pond in its centre and the Village Pond alongside the road leading west to Pulborough.
A population of 4175 is supported by an area of approximately 1300 hectares.
