Coming Soon, Events for your Diary Tuesday 26 March at 8 pm Women's Suffrage – Frances Stenlake. If you missed Frances' talk in Horsted Keynes this is your chance to hear a unique talk on Danehill's connection to this movement. Frances will focus on one of our local heroines, an influential member of the Women's Suffrage Association and first president of our Society, Dame Margery Corbett-Ashby. Tuesday 30 April at 8 pm Fables of Witchcraft – Anthony Smith. Anthony is curator of the Priest House, West Hoathly. He has a fund of knowledge of plants and herbs that have been the source of traditional medication. The renewed interest in such plants for medicinal use makes a fascinating study of this aspect of the past.
Springfield Cottage, London Road, previously called Botches (a 100 acre farm) was a medieval Hall House (c 1450). The masssive chimney was added later.
Danehill Parish Historical Society was founded in 1972 with our first president being Dame Margery Corbett Ashby DBE (pictured in 1923).
