Ifold is a hamlet in West Sussex. Even though it is the largest of the four parish settlements within the Plaistow & Ifold Parish Council[1] area it is not classified as a village, because there is no church within the settlement area. Ifold as it is today began in the same way as Durfold Wood: plots of land were sold, originally to people who used them to build holiday or weekend homes. At the 2011 Census the population was included in the Plaistow civil parish

Ifold has a community centre, Kelsey Hall, built in 1978 and extended in the 1990s with the help of a lottery grant. The hall hosts a number of weekly activity groups, as well as an annual Arts and crafts fair. In the past few years, the hall has also begun hosting film nights with CineMobile touring cinema.

There is also a Scout Association which has Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Brownies, Guides and Explorer Scouts. The Scout hut serves Ifold and the surrounding villages.

History[edit]

The Ifold Estate was first divided into plots of land in the 1930s. Until around 1953 there was no mains water supply.

Transport[edit]

Ifold lies on the 44 bus route of Arriva Bus [2] and route 64 of the Compass Bus Company.[3]
