A Journey Through Horsham’s Changes by John Buchanan and Annabelle Hughes is an excellent commentary upon the chronology of change to the town. Focussing between the years of 1962 and 2004, with numerous photographs highlighting the development, this book was published by Horsham Society in 2008.
A Stones throw
A Stone’s Throw from Gaol Green marks the Society’s Silver Jubilee in 1980. A collection of essays on changes that have taken place in the centre of Horsham since the founding of the Horsham Society in 1955. Its content touches on a few events of the period, reminding the older resident of the changes which have taken place, and giving the more recent residents an idea of what the town was like in earlier days.

Although superseded by Spy Horsham, this 1996 publication was written to help young people appreciate and learn something of the heritage of Horsham. Many Horsham schools used this to support their Local Studies. A range of additional information is also included at the end of the book.
