The old Congregational Chapel is situated on the road between East Ashling and Funtington, opposite the turning to West Ashling. The foundation stone of the chapel was laid on Friday, 18 September 1863. Most of the building material used was various stones, recovered from the fallen tower, of Chichester Cathedral.[9] The tower having fallen down during a storm in 1861. The Chapel closed, as place of worship, between 1934 and 1938. It became a scout headquarters for a while but is currently a clock museum run by the Clock trust.
