There’s a good reason why it’s such a nice place – most of the village is managed by the Slindon Estate which is itself owned by the National Trust. As a result there’s a higher than average emphasis on preventing development and keeping things as they are – which is saying something because West Sussex has stringent planning laws to say the least.
Slindon is one of the birthplaces of cricket (along with Goodwood, Hambledon and a host of other places in the south east who all deserve to have their claims acknowledged – even if there is no one real birthplace of cricket).
There aren’t many things for a visitor to do in Slindon except simply walk around and enjoy it all, although all that may be changing with the setting up of the village's community run shop and cafe - Slindon Forge. The Forge has an information point with detailed info about the vicinity, and the Forge website is an interesting read too.
But just for its sheer prettiness Slindon is highly recommended. Not far from the A29 and A27 roads, it's worth a short but worthwhile detour if you're passing through or nearby.
