WEST GRINSTEAD INFORMATION
Tells you all about the shrine, its history and the Caryll family who provided the financial firepower to allow the building of the outsized Roman Catholic Shrine Church in 1876.
There's a whole of stack of information about the history of the parish and neighbouring Dial Post, Partridge Green and Shipley too.
The website also has an interesting section about Hilaire Belloc and his time at neighbouring Shipley which we here at West Sussex.info heartily recommend. Belloc was one of the leading catholic voices in the period after the first world war and often addressed his faith in his work.
Belloc was burined at the Shrine in West Grinstead in 1953 and the Shrine's Tower was built in his memory.
The site includes a local business directory, information about local facilities and services and has a full list of the all the local clubs and societies.
