St. Mary's, PETWORTH

This current building dates from the 14th century, although it has undergone extensive restoration over the years.

The parish church of St Mary has a long history, the first recorded Rector was Thomas de Falconberg instituted in 1238, although Petworth is mentioned in the Domesday Book.

Most of the present building dates from the 13th or 14th century, but is was so altered by the restorations of 1827 and 1903 that almost none of the original structure is now visible, except for the arches on the north side and the lower part of the tower.

The steeple at St. Mary's has an unfortunate history, having been rebuilt several times before finally being demolished in 1947. There is now a small pyramid-shaped roof capping the tower.

Special thanks to Michael Follis.
