This small space is in the oldest part of the Museum, dating back to the 1420s.
The landing features items brought back from overseas by Charles and Emma Henderson, who travelled to the Far East in the 1880s and '90s. They returned with many unusual items to decorate their home at Sedgwick Park, near Nuthurst, Horsham. These include a large earthenware vase and a bronze kylin, or 'Dog of Fo,' from China that eventually joined many other ethnographical items in the Museum's collection. There is also a superbly carved Indian temple.
Also on display there are weapons and shields from Africa. Such objects are not necessarily associated with Sussex, but have a Horsham connection through the many people from the District who have travelled the globe bringing back souvenirs from other cultures.
