The village lies along a section of the Chichester to Silchester Way Roman road, almost the only part to have survived in modern use. At the southern end of the village the boundary banks of a mansio, a Roman posting station on the road, are visible.
The parish has an Anglican church, St. Luke's, the independent Milland Evangelical Church (MEC) and the disused Tuxlith Chapel which is in the care of a national charity the Friends of Friendless Churches.
Hamlets within the civil parish include: Borden to the south, Queens Corner and Titty Hill to the southeast, Wardley and Shufflesheeps to the northeast, Ripsley to the northeast and Great Trippetts to the west.
Whilst farming and working the land were most important for most people in the past, the Iron and other industries were significant from the Middle Ages.
There have been several large estates in the village but none dominant.
Dangstein House was the home of Captain James Lyon of the East India Company. In 1851, Reginald Nevill and Lady Dorothy Nevill bought the estate. Lady Dorothy laid out ornamental gardens, a fernery and hothouses.
