Horsham's Indian Princess

There are many differing stories about Helena Bennett. She became known as the 'Princess' and can be found in St Mary's graveyard.

Nigel Friswell, Vice President of Horsham Society, has spent many years researching the facts and in 2022 published this 24 page booklet. 

Nigel travelled to France to visit the home town of Helena's husband. The present day Comte gave Nigel  access to the family archives and following further research he was able to publish this booklet.

Copies can be purchased at £2 each. If you are interested, please complete the General Inquiries form at the bottom of the page.

Proposals for a Local List of Buildings 2009

The growth of population planned for Horsham will inevitably bring pressure for more physical change to the existing fabric of the town.

The purpose of producing a Local List is both to draw the attention of owners to the value of their property, and to alert the wider community and Councils to the quality of local architecture and historic interest that merits attention.

It is hoped to publish a 2024 version of this document. We are just waiting for HDC's approval.
