During the war it was the home of Benson’s Fair and was open most of the time. Mr Benson used to be in charge of the bumper cars, I believe they had the caravans in which they lived in.
The market had all kinds of stalls, Mr Standford had a greengrocer’s as well as a shop in East Street.
The owner of the market was Douglas Durrant, and the had a house furnisher’s shop at the Carfax end of the market.
What a pity it was all knocked down with the little houses in Piries Place, they call it progress!
My very happy days in Horsham are not forgotten.
