                                             Next Meeting Tuesday, 14th November 2017: The subject of our talk will be  “Special Operations Executive - Churchill’s Secret Army”
Officially opened  on 3rd April 2017
The   Sussex   based   sculptor   Simon   Groves , who    created    also    our    Time    Line    Totem , carved   the   three   cows   from   a   180-year   old oak    tree,    which    came    from    the    Petworth estate.    The    Montefiores    kept    prize-winning cattle    at    Worth    Park.    Buildings    remaining from     the     large     estate     complex     are     still standing     today     on     Grattons     Drive.     The sculptures   have   been   erected   on   front   of   the ha-ha,    an    unobtrusive    gardening    feature, which   had   been   used   for   many   years   (e.g. mentioned    in    Jane   Austen    novels)    to    keep cattle and deer out of the formal gardens.
