Sussex Archaeological Collections, Vol. 28 free pdf Excerpt from Sussex Archaeological Collections, Vol. 28: Relating to the History and Antiquities of the County The Committee have much pleasure in placing a favourable statement of the Society's affairs for the year 1877, in the hands of the Members. The volume of collections which was issued in the early part of the year contains some interesting papers, and the Annual Meeting, which was held at Horsham in the month of August, gave general satisfaction to a large number of Members and friends who attended it. The parish church of Horsham, one of the noblest parish churches in the county, which has undergone a course of restoration, with a liberal outlay, since the former visit of the Society in 1855, shews, in a very gratifying manner, what judicious restoration of an ancient fabric can effect, where the twofold aim of meeting the parochial wants of the present time, and preserving the architectural features of the past, is steadily kept in sight. The best thanks of the Society are due to the Local Committee for the pains they took in forming a loan collection of a number of interesting objects, among which was a varied selection of archaeological treasures from his museum, contributed by Mr. Honywood-those remarkable specimens of early enamel work, the Shipley Reliquary, and the Rusper Chalice, which, rare as they are, yet, by a strange coincidence, are associated with the same district, were also shewn- the exhibition of the Reliquary proved the means of recovering for it a plaque, a portion of it which had long been missing- and a complete series of rubbings of sepulchral brasses, contributed by Mr. Rice, with some other objects of various kinds, added to the merit of the collection. The interest of the days proceedings was also enhanced by a visit to the site of Sedgwick Castle, in early Norman times a part of the possessions of the family of Le Sauvage, of Broadwater, and afterwards made a part of Broadwater parish. The dinner was at the Kings Head Hotel, the chair being taken by R. H. Hurst, Esq., to whom, for so kindly taking the chair on the occasion, as well as for presiding at the meetings of the Local Committee, the Society is much indebted. In October an excursion was made by a few members and friends to Forest Row, to view a remarkable cist, dug up there by the side of a small stream, by Mr. Martin- nothing, however, was elicited with respect to it, and its history must be matter of mere conjecture, based on comparison. It may be as well to mention that a cist very like it is figured in the Catalogue of the Museum at Copenhagen, by Worsaae (No. 504, Gravkar af Steen fra Bornholm). The Members were kindly received at Kidbrook Park by H. Freshfield, Esq., at the close of the day. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
