Artefacts

If every artefact has a story to tell, then the museum is full of stories, many of them as yet untold.

Separate pages are devoted to the extensive collections of Badges, Prizes and Tokens, to the Dining Hall and its tableware and to the attractive collection of Goss and Crested China.  However, the very wide variety of objects in the collections means that most of the more interesting objects do not fall naturally into separate categories and are therefore included within the unpromising sounding category of ‘other’.

In some ways it is unfortunate from a heritage perspective that no trace remains of the buildings which CH occupied in London for 350 years, and that some of the buildings at Hertford, which CH occupied for 353 years, no longer remain.  However, many objects were transferred to Horsham from the London School in 1902, from the Hertford School in 1985 and from the London Counting House in 1987.  Objects from London and Hertford are therefore well represented in the collection, as well as more recent objects which have been generated at Horsham.
