Living in Hassocks: The Local Area Guide

Hassocks is a large village, situated in West Sussex, England. The village name is believed to have originated from the tufts of grass which surround the hills and downs. The area has been populated since the Stone Age onwards and has a preserved Iron Age fort on Wolstenbury Hill, just outside the village. Interestingly, the place where Hassocks now stands rose to minor significance during the Roman occupation of Britain, as a crossroads between Londinium (London) and Novus Portus (Portslade). A Roman cemetery was excavated near Stonepound Crossroad, in the surrounding area of Hassocks.

Only with the introduction of the Hassocks Gate railway station in 1841 did the village, in its modern form, actually develop. The new route between Brighton and London paved the way for expansion across the Downs, leading to the creation of a number of villages throughout the area. This became sorely needed as the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939 led to the planned evacuation of thousands of children from metropolitan cities. Hassocks and neighbouring villages sheltered 1,250 children throughout this period.

Currently, Hassocks is a place for walking enthusiast’s to eagerly explore the South Downs and for architectural and historical buffs who are keen to see the local 19th Century windmills, nick-named ‘Jack & Jill’.

Demographics

According to the 2011 Census, Hassocks has an overall population of 7667 people with the mean age of 44.9 which is higher than the national average of 40. Just under 12% of the population is over the age of 65, with dependent children under the age of 16 making up around 18% of the village’s residents.

Of the Hassocks population, 56% are economically active with the primary trades being retail, education and social work. Approximately 20% of Hassocks residents identify as economically inactive, although this does constitute retired individuals and stay-at-home parents. This is in keeping with nation-wide averages as published by the Office of National Statistics.

Hassocks has a relatively high number of educated individuals, with 36.8% having reached a Level 4 qualification or more. The amount of residents without any recognised qualifications is slightly over 13%; well below the English average of 22.5%.

The village has remained fairly untouched by surges in immigration over recent years, although there is a wide variety of British diversity amongst its inhabitants. According to the Census, only 0.2% of the population immigrated to Hassocks after 2000. 64.1% of the population identify as English whilst 0.5%, 0.8% and 0.4% identify as Welsh, Scottish and Irish respectively. However, those who identify as a combined nationality is just below 96%, reflecting the predominantly British make-up of the area. Only 3.1% of Hassocks identify as non-British, far lower than the national average of 12.7%. This naturally makes English the most spoken language in the area, with 97.4% of households detailing it as their first language.

Education

Hassocks does not have a wealth of schools in the local area because of its small size. However, there are 3 play schools and nurseries that offer child care services for working parents. Furthermore, The Hassocks Infants School and Windmills Junior School are both situated in the village, catering to children aged 5 to 11. The Downlands Community School teaches pupils aged 11 to 16 from across the area, and was classed as ‘good and improving’ by Ofsted.

Transport

In 2013 the local train station was redeveloped and now runs regularly to Brighton, London and Bedford, making commuting easier than ever. The village is also a short drive from the coast, with the cultural hub of Brighton a convenient 20 minutes away. Worthing, Shoreham and Portslade are also within reach.

Shops and Amenities

Hassocks has a traditional village high street, with several independent shops and cafés including an opticians and a post office too. Recently, some big-name-brands have opened, giving the village centre a welcome blend of classic and modern stores.
