Once described as "the most modest and least ecclesiastical looking church in the world", St Peter's stands on a spur of the South Downs. It consists of an undivided nave and chancel dating from the 12th/13th century, a porch of the 17th century and a vestry added in 1906. It is built of flint rubble with ashlar dressings, has some modern brickwork and is roofed with tiles. A new Millennium Tapestry hangs on the North Wall of the Nave.
