Key landmarks of Slindon
Slindon House – the Elizabethan manor that overlooks the 3,500-acre Estate – is now a college for boys.
The Spur is the last remaining pub. With parts dating back to the 16th century, it also contains a restaurant and skittle alley.
St Mary’s Anglican church was built in 1106, reportedly by St Anselm. Nearby St Richard’s Catholic church was built in.
There are regular film showings in the 1937-built Coronation Hall, which hosts events such as coffee mornings on the first Wednesday of every month and a farmers’ market every fourth Tuesday.
There’s a notorious Folly on the opposite hill, and rumours of a smugglers’ tunnel running between there and Yapton. The pumpkin display attracts visitors from around the world each autumn.
All this makes this picturesque village a fascinating place to live, work and visit.
