North Mundham, (West Sussex)

Parish picture

The old parish of North Mundham contained 1,892 acres, but since the hamlet of South Mundham, which was historically part of Pagham, has been annexed the area is now 2,385 acres. The course of the disused Arundel-Chichester canal crosses the parish just north of the church and village. From here a road runs south to Fisher Farm and on to Bramber Farm, where there is a thatched barn of squared stone and bricks, which may be of the 17th century, and two old flint cottages and two timber-framed barns. Farther north is Runcton, with a Georgian mill-house and pond, and Runcton Lane leads northwards past the site of Leythorne Farm.

Parish picture

The parish church of St Stephen is a large well maintained church built in 13th century, restored in the 19th century when the chancel and vestry were added. The font is cut from a single piece of Sussex marble and is one of the largest in Sussex. The tower is an example of Perpendicular architecture, although most of the church is Early English.
