Lying within West Sussex at the edge of the South Downs National Park, Henfield is a pleasant rural village. The Parish covers an area of approximately 8 square miles and includes the northerly part of the neighbouring village of Small Dole.
Henfield has a population of over 5,000 people and is able to maintain a vibrant community, with a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, well supported by local commerce.
Henfield Parish Council is run from an office based in The Henfield Hall. Council meetings are open to anyone, and residents are encouraged to provide input during "Open Forum”.
A great deal of community information is available from the Council's website.
