FERNHURST
WEST SUSSEX
Fernhurst and the surrounding areas.
A virtual guide for visitor and residents.
 

Fernhurst is a large village on the A286, Haslemere to Midhurst road, in West Sussex, but close to the Surrey border, and includes the settlements of Bell Vale, Kingsley Green and Henley Common.
Although an active village with a modern outlook, Fernhurst is steeped in history, beginning life as a small scattered settlement in Saxon times.
Once called Farnhurst, the name is derived from the Anglo Saxon - "fern covered hill". The village is surrounded by hills, including, to the northeast, Blackdown, at 919ft, the highest hill in Sussex. Fernhurst is an ideal base for walking the Blackdown area.
