About

Watercolour of Lombard Street in Petworth

The Petworth Society was founded in 1974 “to preserve the character and amenities of the town and parish of Petworth including Byworth; to encourage interest in the history of the district and to foster a community spirit”. It is non-political, non-sectarian and non-profit making.

Membership is open to anyone, irrespective of residence who is interested in furthering the object of the society. Annual subscription is £14 (single or double). Postal £18. Overseas £25. Please visit our membership page for further details of how to join.

The society aims to encourage and support other local events, organisations and trusts whose aims broadly align themselves to those of the society.

These include:

  • The Leconfield Hall
  • The Petworth Cottage Museum
  • The Coultershaw Beam Pump
  • Petworth Heritage Partnership
  • Petworth Fair

Mark Burriss, a film maker from Chichester, used the cottage museum as one of the locations for his short film, “We who are left”, about a WW1 veteran reflecting in 1921. To view the film click here.
