Haywards Heath and Victoria Park


Having been asked many times for a picture of Haywards Heath I have now painted a scene that I hope provides happy memories for many of the town’s residents.

My painting shows the Beacon in the foreground with St Wilfred’s church glimpsing through the trees beyond Victoria Park. Many locals visit the park to exercise their dogs or to play football with their children. Some people just stroll around in their lunch hour as a form of relaxation.

The building of the church started on St Wilfrid’s Day 1863 at an expected cost of £6,000. Built mainly of locally quarried sandstone, some of its stained glass windows were donated by William Morris, the 19th century artist.

Beacons once formed part of a chain providing the fastest form of communication – a sort of mediaeval broadband. Beacons are now used symbolically to unify towns across the country and are popular focal points for outdoor celebrations.
