Park House

Park House was built in two stages between 1690 and 1720 and stands on the site of an earlier timber-framed house called Cockmans.  Park House was known as "The Wicker House" after the family who built it and it was purchased by the Council in 1928 together with 16 acres of parkland.  The house was refurbished in 1982/83 and is still occupied by Horsham District Council.  There are some interesting ancillary buildings (a barn, stables and granary), once threatened with demolition but now converted into other uses.  Worth visiting, too, are the scented garden to the rear of Park House and the nearby children's maze with its dragon statue at the centre.

Note also the former horse trough in North Street which was provided by the Metropolitan Water Fountain and Cattle Trough Association to commemorate Captain Drummond MVO who served as Chief Constable in Horsham from 1879 until 1912.
