The shop in Slaugham

This drawing depicts the original village stores which, although called “Ye Shoppe House” in the church registers, was also known as the “Chequers”. Three tokens dated 1660 were found in the garden of Bosworths and inscribed John Lish of the Chequers so it was obviously a substantial business in the 17th century. The building was pulled down in 1837 and replaced by a more modern building to house firstly the village shop and more recently, the Chequers Inn. The Horsham stone roof was removed to St John’s Church in St Leonard’s Forest just ¾ mile west of the entrance to Manning Heath golf club.
