Our Churches

Our benefice/parish is made up of three uniquely historic churches:

Plumpton All Saints

The chapel of ease of All Saints in Plumpton Green was founded in 1893.   Plans were considered in 1843 to replace or, as it turned out, supplement the remotely situated parish church of Plumpton with a new one in the present village.  Nothing was done until 1893 however, when S Denman (RIBA/A/F) designed a church which is mostly late C13 in style and cost some £2000 (KD 1899). All Saints is located at the centre of the village, close to the station and racecourse.

East Chiltington

East Chiltington church is grade II* listed and was a chapel of ease to Westmeston from at least 1291. The chapel, now a parish church, is built of sandstone rubble and the roofs are tiled. The nave dates to the early 12th century. A west tower was added c. 1200 and the chancel was rebuilt later. The church was restored in 1889–90.
