Petworth History

Petworth has been settled since at least Norman times and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086.  A sense of great history is imposed on the town by Petworth House – a palatial 17th century mansion on the edge of town.

Petworth has had a market square since at least 1541 and some historians suggest it was there for at least 300 years before that.

Our live in care services are unique to your loved ones needs and therefore actual costs will be determined by the level of care.
