Rogate is a village and civil parish in the Chichester district of West Sussex, England in the Western Rother valley. The village is on the A272 road 5.6 miles (9.0 km) west of Midhurst and 5 miles (8.0 km) east of Petersfield, Hampshire. The civil parish includes the villages of Rogate and Rake and the hamlets of Haben, Fyning, Hill Brow, Langley, Durford, Wenham, Durleighmarsh and Terwick Common.
Rogate is not mentioned by name in the Domesday Survey, but was assumed to be part of Harting Manor. It was in the Hundred of Dumpford, and Chichester rape, diocese and archdeaconery. It was in the Midhurst union, county court district and rural deanery. During the reign of Edward III (1327-1377) it was held by Ralph de Camois who was granted a charter for a fair.
In 1867 the population of Rogate parish was 990, and the area was 4,873 acres (19.72 km2). An annual fair was held on 27 September.
The ancient parish of Terwick is included in Rogate and the northern part of the parish is in the ecclesiastical parish of Milland.
There are primary schools in both Rogate and Rake. In 2008 Rogate School was the subject of a successful, highly publicised campaign to overturn a council recommendation to close the school. In February 2011 the school was judged 'Outstanding' by Ofsted and is a popular small village school with excellent facilities, including a two-acre (0.8 ha) playing field.
The only pub in Rogate village is the White Horse, following the closure of the Wyndham Arms. The Jolly Drover at Hill Brow and the Sun Inn at Rake on the old London to Portsmouth road lie just within the parish and county boundary, which runs through the middle of The Flying Bull pub, a short distance north of the Sun Inn. In 2011 the Sun Inn closed and in 2012 planning permission was granted for conversion to residential use. Rake had another pub, now closed: The Red Lion, opposite The Flying Bull on the London Road, which was the scene of a murder in 1748.
