In March, 1978 the Queen visited Horsham to officially open the new Queen Elizabeth 2nd Silver Jubilee School on Comptons Lane.
Banners and Pennants were erected along the route leading up to the school where the procession was lined with crowds and children waving flags.
At the time, her Majesty was accompanied by Lavinia, Duchess of Norfolk, who was the first woman Lord Lieutenant of West Sussex from 1975.
