An interesting village that has been intersected by the A24 bypass road to Worthing.
On one side is the ancient church with nearby Manor House, and on the other side is the village centre. The streets are narrow and full of charm with many original buildings and a handful of individual shops.

Up until WW2 and the subsequent expansion of Worthing, Findon was known for its annual Sheep Fair, which drew farmers from a wide area to it, to sell their sheep. The Sheep Fair still continues as an annual event without the sheep sales.

Behind the village and clearly seen from the A24, are the remains of Cissbury Ring, one of the largest ancient Iron Age Hill Forts in the South of England. Access for walkers is available from nearby Findon Valley, and footpaths from it lead up onto the South Downs Way, which gives fine views across both the Weald and also the Coastal Plain.

Findon is 15 miles south-east of Pulborough
