Ifold is a hamlet in West Sussex and part of the civil Parish of Plaistow, of which it is the largest settlement. Ifold is classified as a hamlet, because there is no shop, Church, school or pub within the settlement. Ifold has a settlement boundary and for decades has had new housing development. Ifold as it is today arose from historic Ifold Estate with its manor house, Ifold House built in 1802 on the site of an original and demolished in 1936. During WWII plots of land were sold, originally to people who used them to build holiday or weekend homes.
Ifold has a community centre, Kelsey Hall, built in 1978 and extended in the 1990s with the help of a lottery grant. The hall hosts a number of weekly user groups.
The Ifold Estate was first divided into plots of land in the 1930s. Until around 1953 there was no mains water supply.
