St Mary's Church, Billingshurst

The church building is a wonderful reminder of the continuity of worship in the village for more than 800 years.

The earliest parts of the church date back to the 12th century but it is likely that there was earlier occupation of the site. Over the centuries, there has been extensive development.

The main feature of the nave is the fine 15th/16th century wagon roof with over 30 different designs of carved oak bosses, including the arms of the Percy, Beaufort and Neville families. The two tie beams may date from the 13th century.

The spire, 120 feet high, was added to the tower in the 15th century. The eight sides are covered with wooden shingles.
