St Peter's Parham and the lost village of Parham
The church used to serve the village of Parham, but the village has now completely disappeared from view - one of a number of lost villages in West Sussex.
Towards the end of the 18th century there was a small but apparently thriving Parham village alongside St Peter's Church. The village was cleared some time in the 19th century, ostensibly for reasons of "hygiene" but more realistically to allow the Estate at Parham to be enclosed, forming the lovely deer park which can be seen today.
