And as a Sussex railway town, Barnham also attracts more than its fair share of bad publicity as a result of occasional punch up near the railway station.
However, Barnham has an interesting history, including a spell not so very long ago, when it had a thriving fishing industry on a creek of the River Arun. Sadly, this is no more.
Barnham today takes in several acres of glass houses, taking advantage of the mild and sunny climate south of the Downs in this part of West Sussex.
Barnham churchBarnham village church is an attractive Norman affair, which has now become somewhat separated from the main part of the village. The importance of the railway to Barnham meant that traffic grew considerably in late Victorian times and the 20th century. All the new houses which were built in that period and in the 20th century have helped to shift the focus of the village away from the ancient and attractive church of St. Mary.
Other interesting buildings in BarnhamPerhaps the most recognizable icon of Barnham is its windmill. Another important building around the village is Barnham Court. Although Barnham Court is not open to public, it is a high quality 17th century mansion nonetheless.
