  • Members can now download all of our out of print publications free of charge. Within the Members section is a Publications Download button. This gives members the opportunity of fully downloading any of our publications that are no longer on sale. These go back to 1980.  If the button does not work it is waiting for the appropriate booklet to be uploaded. To my knowledge the only missing book is the 2001 edition of the Children's Trail. Does anyone have a copy that I can borrow?

  • Members will find that the past copies of our Newsletter, going back to 1962, can now be read online. This section will be updated following the publication of each future issue. I am now missing three newsletter only: February 1980, July 1984 and February 1987. Please let me know if you have a copy.

  • The last twelve issues of the newsletter can be found under 'Current Newsletters'.

  • Within the Newsletter Archive is a new button 'Newsletter Indexes' These were completed by volunteers and cover the period of 1991 -2020.  An index for 1974 - 1984 has now been added. Hopefully members may find these of value.

  • Our fortnightly articles in the West Sussex  County Times are also available for members to read.  This archive goes back to January 2018.

  • We have just purchased a new scanner which will enable us, with the help of volunteers, to digitise our paper archives. There are thousands of pages, which during the course of the year, will be added to our website giving an insight into the past.
