Slaugham (pronounced Slafam) is a pretty village much untouched by time. The Village has just the one main street, called 'Park Road' where the main population resides. The Village Tap - no longer working - is quite quaint and now carries the village notice board. There is also another unusual feature, a white telephone box, possibly the only one in the country (this is now a Grade II Listed Building). The Street also has two unique lamp posts which have the royal crown on top.

The Parish Church of St. Mary is here. This is a Norman church with a 13th century clock tower and a Victorian clock. Nelson's sister is buried here. The church was originally obscured from view by a public house but the late Colonel Warren had it pulled down to bring the church to view. He also paid for all the overhead cables to be placed underground.

There is a large lake nearby called Furnace Pond, the name derives from the times when there were iron works in the area. The lake is surrounded by Slaugham Common and it is worth spending time walking around the lake for the beautiful sights.
