A village consisting of two halves, the old and the present. The present is an extension of Storrington, that lies between Water Lane (the road that leads from the A283 to Steyning Grammar Prep School, formerly Rydon School) and the speed camera on the Storrington-Thakeham road. It consists mostly of individual houses that border common land, that is very popular with walkers. This common land is accessible from a car park in Water Lane.

“Olde Sullington”, on the other hand, is a tiny hamlet on the South Downs side of the A283. It consists of a church, a farm, a Tithe Barn, and a few houses, and is about half a mile away from the A283, across farmland. The church which is not always open, has an interesting memorial in the graveyard, commemorating the loss of the Captain and Crew of a WW1 submarine, which sank.

The Tithe Barn is one of the finest and longest barns in Sussex. Lovingly restored, this Grade II listed barn is available for public hire such as Wedding Receptions and Community Events. A café, open as advertised, serves light refreshments as well as displaying the work of local artists.

Sullington is 6 miles east of Pulborough
