Entrance to the Quadrangle of Christ's Hospital at Horsham

Entrance to the Quadrangle of Christ's Hospital at Horsham

Built of a red brick that has now begun to mellow pleasantly, the great group of collegiate buildings was designed by the late Sir Aston Webb, and formally opened in 1903. While the planning has been severely criticised, there can be no denying its spacious scale or the impressiveness of the fine chapel just outside the quadrangle, or that of the "big school" and dining hall within it. One of the old gateways from Newgate Street was cut in half and rebuilt into two of the new gateways.
