The Chestfield Barn (pictured) originated as part of the Chestfield Manor in the 14th century, a possession of the half-brother of William the Conqueror, Odo, Bishop of Bayeux. It is believed that the Manor dates back to as early as 1084, particularly as it is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. In the early part of the 20th century the barn was converted into a golf house by Abe Mitchell, to service the 700 acre golf course constructed in 1924 by George Reeves, making the barn the oldest golf club house in the country.

In September, members of Chestfield Cricket Club will attempt to break the world record for the longest cricket match. The record currently stands at 34 hours.
