The Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) was born in this pleasant Wealden market town in West Sussex at Field Place.

He was the son of Sir Timothy Shelley, later the 2nd baronet of Castle Goring, and his wife Elizabeth Pilfold.

In his younger days he was tutored at home by the Reverend Thomas Edwards.

Horsham is the ideal base from which to explore the nearby St Leonard’s Forest and its wooded valleys.
