Hassocks

Hassocks is 8 miles north of Brighton and is one of the larger villages at the eastern end of the Arundel & South Downs constituency.  It has a population of nearly 7,000 people.

While people have lived in and around Hassocks for thousands years, Hassocks first became a major centre of population with the coming of the railway.  In 1839 the first rail line was laid between London and Brighton, with Hassocks as a stop.

The railway continues to play an important role in the life of the village, with hundreds of people commuting to London each day.

Above Hassocks there are two famous windmills, known as Jack and Jill.
