Storrington is a large village which can be found within the Horsham local government district, of the ceremonial county of West Sussex in southern England. The village is situated at the foot of the north side of the South Downs, on the route of the A238 road which connects the village to the settlements of Steyning in the east and Pulborough in the west.
A Brief History Of Storrington
The first written reference to the settlement of Storrington comes from the Domesday Book of 1086, but at this time the village was known as Estorchestone. That name can be translated as meaning ‘a place known for storks’ and evolved and adapted to become the name Storrington through the next few decades and centuries.
It was in 1400 that the village was granted a charter to hold a weekly market by King Henry VI, together with permissions for three fairs during the year on Mayday, Wednesday of Whit week and the Feast of Martin on November 11. Through the years, the main trades within Storrington were those of tanning and blacksmithing and it was only in the 20th century that these entirely died out.
Present Day Storrington
Since the end of the Second World War the village of Storrington has expanded greatly, mostly due to a number of housing projects and developments. This has led the settlement to now be home to nearly 5,000 permanent residents and to have many of the facilities normally reserved for a small town.
These include a supermarket, a wide variety of independent stores, three pubs, four banks, a museum and a post office. What the increased size of the village also means, however, is that it plays host to a number of accidents and injuries which would also be more likely associated with a small town. It is this, as a result, which makes it pertinent for us to now briefly discuss the issues surrounding compensation and injury solicitors Storrington residents.
