Horsham Public Sculpture: Bainbridge Copnall’s The Astronomer

Collyer’s School has an interesting work by Edward Bainbridge Copnall (1903-1973), whose other works include Thomas Becket in the garden of St. Paul’s Cathedral, London; his Crucifixion on Broadbridge Heath church was moved to Horsham Museum in 2008. A former President of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, his son John Bainbridge Copnall (1928–2007) was a painter and lived locally.
