The Local Area Guide to Living in Small Dole

The idyllic village of Small Dole is situated in the Horsham District of West Sussex and lies two miles south of the historic village of Henfield. In the 1970s, the Church of England altered Small Dole’s parish boundaries and shifted the village from the parish of Upper Beeding to the parish of Henfield. There’s a pleasant atmosphere throughout the community and the village’s rural location makes it an ideal place for those who desire a peaceful way of life.

Small Dole’s close proximity to the civil parish of Henfield means local residents and visitors can explore the history of Henfield and the neighbouring villages at the Henfield Museum. There’s an exciting array of items exhibited at the museum from fossils and flints, to Medieval, Tudor, Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian artefacts. Colonel Henry Bishop, who invented the first postmark, is also buried in the local Henfield church cemetery.
