Welcome to Historic Loxwood and over 775 years of History

Loxwood Village is located within West Sussex 25 miles from the Cathedral City of Chichester. The first record of settlers in the area was in 1248 during the reign of Henry III, in the age of the Knights Templars.

Our website illustrates how Loxwood Village developed from the earliest times along with its neighbouring villages through the key moments in world history, set against the Monarchical periods and the impact of social changes. The website also remembers the contributions and sacrifices made by villagers, who time has forgotten, that shaped the village of today.
