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