St John the Baptist's is bigger than most of the churches around Petworth. The nave was originally Norman, as can be seen by the herringbone masonry on the north side of the nave.The south aisle is late C12, with stately, plain, circular piers with waterleaf capitals. Pevsner thought the tower was c 1300. He also thought the chancel 'surpisingly showy for a Sussex village'. He admired the tracery in the windows and ignored the rather fine Victorian stained glass in them of prophets and evangelists. The east window includes significant incidents in the life of John the Baptist.
