Plaistow is a village and civil parish in the north of the Chichester District of West Sussex, England.

There are over thirty Grade II listed buildings in the village. The Sun Inn was purchased by the Pullen family in 1807. Holy Trinity Church (a Chapel of Ease) was once a wooden structure which was destroyed by fire. The church was rebuilt in 1859.

The primary school was built in 1869 and has a plaque on the school's original Victorian building acknowledging the significant funding from John Napper, Esquire of Ifold House, who then owned much of the land in the civil parish.

The parish lies on the northern boundary of West Sussex, and is made up of four settlements: Plaistow village and the hamlets of Ifold, Durfold Wood and Shillinglee. Ifold is the largest of the settlements and has the largest population in the parish which has a land area of 2102 hectares (5192 acres). In the 2001 census there were 701 households with 1,856 people, of whom 910 were economically active.
