Shelley honoured

Edition: Summer 2022

The bicentenary of the death of Horsham-born poet Percy Bysshe Shelley was officially marked by the planting of a symbolic chestnut tree in the new Shelley Wildlife Garden at Warnham Local Nature Reserve.

A symbolic chestnut tree at Warnham Local Nature Reserve

Historical documentation has indicated to us that Shelley often sat under a chestnut tree near the Reserve’s Millpond. This is where he took a lot of his inspiration for his work. Shelley died on 8 July 1822 as a result of a boating accident in Italy at the age of 29.
