    HORSHAM MUSEUM

    by Acirfa Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Horsham museum is a mini treasure trove. It is aptly placed in the Causeway in a medieval timber framed house. There is so much to discover in here, allow at least an hour and a half and you'll discover a wealth of historical facts. There are also walled gardens and temporary exhibitions...you can even get married here if you so desire.

    I have included the website at the bottom so a virtual tour before the real thing, just to tempt you, oh and admission is FREE.

    SOUTHWATER COUNTRY PARK

    by Acirfa Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    SOUTHWATER PARK was once a brick works, it has three lakes, a cafe and visitors centre. Cripplegate lake is the first lake you approach upon entry and is used for watersports and wildlife.

    The Quarry lake is retained solely for wildlife and the Lennoxwood lake is used by anglers.

    With an adventure park for your youngest, watersports for the family, along with orienteering, fishing, cycling outside of the park on the Downs link, there is something for all the family.

    Disposable BBQ's are allowed but make sure you use the designated areas.

    This year, Horsham featured it's first English festival, with a selection of Morris dancers, medieval market with local foods, drinks and crafts. Music, historical exhibitions, children's entertainment and more around the town centre

    We already have Italian and French festivals and now Horsham has introduced a new festival focused around Day of Dance.

    Discription from website
    Organised by the local Broadwood Morris, the Day of Dance is an invitational event which regularly attracts 10 or more ‘sides’ which display at locations across Horsham Town Centre. The dance teams mostly perform traditional English dances such as Morris (Cotswold, North West and Border), Step Clog and Sword. Also, Scottish and Appalachian dances are regularly featured.
    One of the main features of the day is the Carfax Ceilidh (Bandstand Barn dance) which enables members of the public to join in the dancing.

    On this festival day, companies were handing out free fare and there was an interesting historical trail laid out for people to discover facts about Horsham of days gone by.

    Visit the Village of Warnham

    by Acirfa Updated Jan 18, 2008

    St Margarets Church, Warnham

    Warnham, it is thought means the place of grazing for feral stallions which roamed the forest and Durfold farm (1330 ish), this apparently also refers to the wild deer. Here, like Horsham, during the 16th century timber was an important asset, as it was supplied to the navy from the Slaughterford Manor estate.

    The Anglican Parish Church of St Margaret was built in the 14th century, however, it has been altered since then. It was at this Church that the Poet Shelly was baptised in 1792, he later went every day for lessons with the vicar Reverand Edwards. There are also monuments to several influential families of Sussex, i.e the Carylls, the Lucases and the Shelley's.

    This small village is home to two pubs, the Sussex Oak and the Greets, along with a railway station.
