Tales of shops, coaches, soldiers and hangings in 19th century Horsham

In January 1911, the West Sussex County Times published a lengthy letter from an unnamed man who signed off as ‘Nobody’. His letter looked back at the early 19th century, sharing tales of the ‘considerable’ amount of stage coach traffic, soldiers, the lack of ready made goods in shops, pub fights, destructive storms, imprisonments, executions and murders. These are his words.
