The Parish Church of All Saints, Mountfield dates back to the early 12th century - although it is possible that a wooden structure was on the site prior to 1066. It remains, essentially, a Norman building. The chancel and nave were built first, (c1107-1124), followed by the tower (c1180-1200). Some of the original windows survive - others were inserted in the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries. Of particular note is the large Norman font (the second largest in Sussex) with 16th century decoration. The paintings on the chancel wall range from form the 12th century to the 16th.

Entry to the church is through the 14th century porch on the south side. The clock was installed in the tower in 1905 in memory of Lady Mary Egerton.
