Plaistow (/ˈplæst/ PLAST-oh[2]) is a village in the Chichester District of West Sussex, England. The hamlet of Ifold was included in the 2011 Cenus population. There is a village green with a pond, a shop overlooking it, a pub, The Sun Inn and an Anglican Church, all in the centre of the village. There are over thirty graded (previously known as listed) buildings in the village.[citation needed] The Sun Inn was purchased by the Pullen family in 1807. Plaistow Church was built in 1810 and Plaistow School in 1869. The village primary school is shared with Kirdford.

The village has its own football club, Plaistow FC, which formed in 1931 and was admitted to the Horsham and District League. They now play in the West Sussex Football League. The home ground is 'Foxfields'.
