History of Bingfield
The remains of an ancient mediæval village in the field in front of the church were uncovered during an oil excavation.
Bingfield likely developed from a farming community in the early 19th century, and most of the buildings date to that era. There were probably four farms: the present farm at the bottom of the road (now owned by the Whites and Sistersons); the Scott's farm, located about half a mile from Bingfield Combe Cottage, which consists of a massive farmhouse and several barn houses, now converted into homes. There is a smaller farm fifty yards opposite from the original farmhouse at the bottom of the hill, which was owned by the Scotts and Bingfield east quarter. There was also a school in Bingfield, and a church which dates to the late 18th/early 19th century, serving Bingfield and neighbouring Hallington.
Bingfield remained largely unchanged from the mid 19th century until after the Second World War, when mechanisation changed the face of farming: the farms of the parish consolidated and new houses were built, particularly since the 1970s.
