Rustington sits on the Sussex coast just over a mile to the east of Littlehampton. There has been human settlement here since the Bronze Age, their evidence uncovered by the local Archaeological Society. The church of St.Peter & St.Paul dates from the 12th century and the west tower remains largely untouched from that time with twin round-headed bell openings, the chancel and north transept are C13th. Farming and agriculture have always been the mainstay of the local economy and it remained unchanged until the mid C19th. This was a time of social change brought about by the opening up of the country by the railways, the dying out of the Feudal system and more social enlightenment. Rustington felt the changes too, the railway line from Brighton to Littlehampton opened in 1846 and a station at Angmering - a mile or so to the north - opened at the same time; the last `Lord of the Manor died and most of his lands were sold off and new industries sprang up notably brick and tile making using local clay; the same soil saw a number of nurseries spring up, not only supplying local needs but exporting crops to Worthing and beyond. After the Second World War saw the gradual increase in Rustington becoming a more residential area; the population increased from 342 in 1851 to 3897 in 1951. There still many old thatched cottages and flint built houses to be found among their more modern counterparts.
