Long a quiet and picturesque spot in Sussex, as the 19th century dawned, Henfield found itself a stop on the busy London to Brighton coaching route, before the railway arrived half a century later casting all else before it. Spurring a vibrant century long market gardening industry it was also then to depart. See some of the highlights of the people, places, industries and recreations of Henfield past.
