Thirty years ago, the iconic Horsham Houses book was launched and we’re absolutely delighted to reveal that we’re helping to bring it back for a new generation!

Horsham Museum

Working alongside The Friends of Horsham Museum and author Dr Annabelle Hughes, we’re really proud to be involved in the creation of Horsham Houses Revisited.

The updated version of Horsham Houses (based on Dr Hughes’ 1986 classic title that graced many coffee tables and bookshelves of local homes!) will feature homes documented by the historian, alongside their modern day portraits taken by our fantastic photographers.

As well as individual house profiles, we will be capturing contemporary Horsham in all of its colourful glory. These striking images will sit beside and contrast the black and white images taken in years gone by, showing our town ‘revisited’.  Thanks to years of extensive research and updates in science and building history, Dr Hughes has been able to reveal and uncover even more of our local homes hidden histories.

Our Chairman Paul Rooney, who remembers and enjoyed the book from the first time around, was especially keen to lend our support to the book’s second edition:

“We used to have copies of Horsham Houses at home and in our office,” he says. “It’s such a valuable resource to be able to learn about the history of homes within the area.”

 “I’m so pleased to have been offered the opportunity to be part of the new version, for this generation to enjoy.”

Horsham Houses Revisited will be able to purchase in September. Check out our Facebook page for regular updates!
