The parish constitutes the hundred. The church of St. Andrew has been thoroughly repaired and furnished with open seats, at the expense of nearly £2,800, defrayed by voluntary subscriptions, assisted by a grant from the Society for Building and Enlarging Churches, except the chancel, which belongs to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners. The living is a vicarage, with Heene annexed, joint annual value £474, in the gift of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and held by the Rev. John Wood Warter, B.D., of Christ Church, Oxford. Here is the only fig orchard in England. The parishes comprise 1,226 acres and the population, including Salvington, in 1861 was 606.
