Steyning is a town in West Sussex which is located in beautiful undulating countryside of the South Downs. It has its origins in Saxon times, dating back to the 8th century at least, as according to legend St Cuthman founded a church there in the late 8th or early 9th century. The church was at first dedicated to St Cuthman, its founder, but later, the Norman church which was built on the original site was dedicated to St Andrew. There are the ruins of Bramber Castle to see and the town itself is full of interesting architecture which demonstrates its rich history. At the time of the Domesday Book (1086) Steyning had a mint, and two churches, one dedicated to St Mary and the other to St Cuthman, which served the spiritual needs of the residents who lived in the 123 dwellings in the town. Clearly it was a place of note in the 11th century.
