The area around Tillington Parish is steeped in history largely because of its proximity to the great estates of Cowdray, Petworth and Pitshill.  The majority of the 18th and 19th Century inhabitants of Tillington, Upperton and River worked on the latter two estates and lived in village houses provided for them .
A superb new book, Village Boys Still, is now available.  It chronicles the lives of thirty-one soldiers from the Parish of Tillington who fell in the Great War.
