The church dates from the 12th century. This building is now a single room retaining two original windows and what seems to be a reset 13th century lancet window with deep splays and shafts inside. Nearby are the Manor House and Tithe Barn, the latter a fine 17th century example of its type with a gabled, pantile roof, weatherboarding and two large entrances.

Around the road junction of Preston Cross are several old properties with flint walls, tree filled front gardens and a relatively open pattern of development that provides an attractive contrast to the adjoining residential areas.

    I noticed on the 1891 census that there is mention of a Little Brooks in Ockley Surrey. Is this the name of a place or some kind of dwelling or land. I would really appreciate some information on this. Many thanks
