About Hassocks

Hassocks is a wonderful village in Mid Sussex, not far from Brighton, with an array of independent shops as well as high street chains. The name ‘Hassocks’ is derived, according to local legend, from grass tufts in the field around this rural settlement. There are indications of inhabitants from as far back as the Stone Age, but the village as known today really developed after Hassocks Gate Railway Station was formed in 1841. Sussex contains so many beautiful villages and the environment surrounding Hassocks is typically charming. The escarpment from Clayton to Offham is a site of special scientific interest and there is also an ancient 17.6 acre ancient woodland known as Butchers Wood, with a blend of hazel and oak trees. Friars Oak meadows are also noteworthy, off London road.

Villagers in Hassocks inhabit a delightful range of dwellings which, in their own way, ooze rustic charm upon streets such as Stanford Avenue, Stonepound Road, Semley Road, Keymer Road, Woodsland Road, Chancellor’s Park, Parklands Road, Windmill Avenue, Ockley Lane, Dale Avenue and Lodge Lane. If you ever find yourself taking a stroll down one of these streets, you’d be sure to receive a warm welcome by residents walking nearby.

Sporting activities are a favoured pastime in Hassocks and a new sports pavilion erected after the former pavilion was knocked down in 2010, has bolstered enthusiasm. The new building is very modern and uses latest eco friendly technology when it comes to heating. Adastra Park has a number of football fields, which are used by both older and younger players from the village. Cricket is also represented via the Keymer & Hassocks Cricket Club, which also plays at the park. The park itself also hosts playgrounds and a skate park, as well as tennis courts and a tennis and squash club at nearby South Bank. Hassocks Football Club plays at the Beacon Ground and the village golf club is to the west of the village with an impressive 18-hole course.

Hassocks can claim a fair share of famous folk amongst the town’s residents, past and present. Raymond Briggs, creator of Father Christmas and The Snowman, which contained his wonderful cartoon work, has been a resident. Also, playwright Patrick Hamilton, who was born there in 1904. Sportswise there has been Jonathan Pearce, who was famous for commentating on Match of the Day and also the motorcycle racer, Martin Dugard. These celebrities have been drawn to the friendly community in Hassocks, which is welcoming and hospitable to strangers.

Hassocks has a wonderful site of special scientific interest, found within the parish itself. Known as Clayton to Offham Escarpment, the site contains unusual chalk grassland and the scrub and woods are also rare, and of great interest for scientific study. The site is located in an ongoing route from Hassocks via Ditchling, all the way to Lewes. Hassocks also has a superb old woodland called Butchers Wood. Measuring nearly 18 acres, the woods are owned by the Woodland Trust and have bluebells, oak and hazel. Friars Oak Fields is another Arcadian idyll.

Hassocks provides a number of educational facilities for youngsters from birth right up to leaving age (16). The main infant school, founded in 1877, is for four to seven-year-olds, with its main base right in the heart of the village. Development at the school, in recent times, means the original Victorian building is now complemented by a new library, hall and classrooms. Further extensions to the school are anticipated. Downlands Community School provides secondary school education for older children but students wanting to pursue A levels need to travel further afield.
