Traffic in Carfax and Horsham
A fascinating view of Horsham's increasingly heavy traffic in the early 1960s, with buses, cars, markets and shops.
From the collection of:
The growing amount of traffic on Horsham's streets in the early 1960s is captured in this colour film from Cecil Cramp. We see a variety of buses, including some London Country services, as well as cars, bicycles and pedestrians. Cramp also filmed areas of Horsham undergoing redevelopment and the disruption it caused. We get a glimpse of Horsham's markets and streets before pedestrianisation took place and the film ends with an outdoor steam rally.
