Horsham and beyond, England - June 13, 2008

Horsham is a market town of about 50,000 on the River Arun in the county of West Sussex. The first mention of Horsham was in King Eadreds land charter of 947 CE. The town seems to have grown up around the Carfax, which is nowadays a large, pedestrianized square, complete with a bandstand but was originally a junction of five roads. Like so many mid-sized English towns, Horsham exudes a friendly community atmosphere around this downtown area and supports numerous, well attended activities. See here for pictures.
After leaving Horsham we stopped briefly at the still picturesque village of Cowfold on the final leg of our journey back to Heidi's home in East Sussex. Another hugely enjoyed trundle around Europe was
over and we were back to the reality of airlines and schedules as we made our way home to Indiana. This final entry of our 2008 odyssey has ended about 10 months after the event and just in time for the start of our 2009 adventure that begins on April 30th. Watch this space...
