The village is situated on Langston Harbour, opposite Hayling Island, and comprises the chapelries of Emsworth, and part of Red Hill. Warblington came from a family of that name in Henry III.'s time to Ralph de Monthermer, and subsequently to the Montacutes and Cottons, whose mansion, Warblington Castle, is now in ruins, the gateway and tower alone remaining.
