World War I daily bulletin from the Horsham district

This is a small excerpt from a detailed walk published in the County Times in 1914.

“Highways and byways of Horsham: ...Continuing forwards [along North Parade from the Park] several other pretty villas and cottages are paased, also the famous hostelty, to wit, the Dog and Bacon, and succeeded by on the left about a dozen more cosy villas. “While to the right a little further on, the celebrated Warnham Mill Pond and waterfall comes to view, with its ancient mill which pond is immortalised by the fact of its having been a favourite rendezvous of Sussex’s poet Shelley.”

As part of our First World War centenary coverage we want to hear from you. If you live in the Horsham district and had a relative who fought in the war, tell us about them. It doesn’t matter if the relative lived outside the area.
