Horsham Through Time Summary

Horsham Through Time by Susan C. Djabri

In Horsham Through Time 19th and 20th century photographs from Horsham Museum's archives have been matched with those taken recently by members of Horsham Photographic Society, now in its 60th anniversary year. These show how many of Horsham's most treasured buildings have survived and found new uses. Horsham's ancient parish church, castellated Town Hall and medieval burgage houses remain largely unchanged alongside modern shopping centres in Swan Walk and Pirie's Place, while other old buildings have been adapted for office or residential use. Some former streets have disappeared under the dual carriageway, built to relieve damaging traffic congestion, but an exciting new public space has been created in The Forum, where the history of Horsham and its surrounding district is imaginatively portrayed on a giant sundial.
