Parish Church of St Peter, Upper Beeding - Horsham

Medieval village church built of a mixture of ashlar and rubble stone with areas of flint. The roofs have Horsham slab on the outer slopes and tiled inner slopes. The church is at risk due to defects to the roofs, rainwater disposal and stonework. Historic England/Heritage Lottery Fund grant-aided repairs to the tower and valley gutter have been completed. However further repairs are still required.
