Henfield Common

Horsham District’s parks and countryside sites are vitally important at this time. However, social distancing, as set out by the Government, is absolutely crucial. We have therefore put in place some restrictions. Find full details on the Coronavirus: Parks, leisure and venues page.

Situated on the edge of the village and covering over 19 hectares, Henfield Common is a treasured open space, popular with families, sports enthusiasts, horse riders and dog walkers.

The cricket pavilion and Memorial Playing Fields dominate the eastern section of the common and the annual summer fayre is the highlight of a number of popular events that take place on the site.

The common, or commons as it officially comprises of three sections Henfield, Oreham and Broadmare, support some rare and fragile wildlife, grassland and wetland habitats and a host of native willdflowers.

Henfield Common is registered Common Land and the northern part has been designated as a Local Wildlife Site (LWS). Owned by Horsham District Council, the day to day management is under the control of the Henfield Commons Joint Committee (HCJC) whose members include Parish Councillors,  District Councillors and co-opted non-voting members.
