Rogate is a village and civil parish in the Chichester district of West Sussex, England situated in the Western Rother valley. The village is on the A272 road seven miles (11 km) west of Midhurst. The parish comprises the villages of Rogate and Rake and the hamlets of Haben, Fyning, Hill Brow, Langley, Durford, Wenham, Durleighmarsh and Terwick Common. The ancient parish of Terwick is included in Rogate and the northern part of the parish is in the ecclesiastical parish of Milland. Until the passing of the Counties (Detached Parts) Act 1844 part of Rogate was an exclave of Hampshire.

In the 2001 census the parish covered 23 km² (5,721 acres) and had 623 households with a total population of 1,513. 716 residents were economically active.[1]

The parish has two Church of England churches and two primary schools in Rogate village and in the neighbouring village of Rake. The only pub in Rogate village is the White Horse, following the closure of the Wyndham Arms. The Jolly Drover at Hill Brow and the Rising Sun at Rake on the old London to Portsmouth road lies just within the parish and county boundary. This boundary also runs through the middle of the Flying Bull. There are therefore three and a half pubs in Rogate.

In 2008, Rogate School was the subject of a hugely successful and highly publicised campaign to overturn a council recommendation to close the school. In February 2011 the school was judged 'Outstanding' by Ofsted[2] and is an extremely popular small village school with excellent facilities, including a two acre (0.8 ha) playing field.

Until recently Roman Abramovich owned a large country estate at Fyning Hill, near Rogate, which he bought from Australian media magnate Kerry Packer.[3]
