Slindon is a small village and civil parish in the Arun District of West Sussex, England, nestling in woodlands (much of it belonging to the National Trust) on the southern edge of the South Downs. Slindon lies approximately seven miles north-east of Chichester.
St Mary's 12th century parish church contains a memorial to Stephen Langton (c1150–1228), the Archbishop of Canterbury who attended the signing of Magna Carta. In the Middle Ages Slindon House (now Slindon College) was the site of one of the Archbishop's residences. In 1330 Thomas de Natindon, who was a legal representative of the Pope, was sent to Slindon to serve a writ on the archbishop. His party were not well received by the archbishop's servants who stripped and bound them, then threw cold water over them, apparently with the archbishop's consent. Natindon escaped and was pursued over the hills to Petworth where he was caught and held in prison for three days.
