The Quest for England – A Look At Ferring in West Sussex

Today I have cycled to Ferring, an ancient village that dates back to the Saxon period. A farming community close to the sea with some wonderful houses old flint buildings.

The site of the village is an ancient one: the name itself is Saxon; it is mentioned in the Domesday Book; the parish church is Norman, and is dedicated to St Andrew. In the churchyard are buried the ashes of Major John Bigelow Dodge (1894-1960), veteran of the Great Escape of 1944, and there is a Commonwealth war grave of a Royal Sussex Regiment officer of World War II.
