Book detail:


Lancing College.


Basil Handford.

Parish(s) covered:



Lancing College was founded in 1848 by Nathaniel Woodard. It was in many ways a revolutionary school, as Basil Handford reveals in his lively account of its remarkable past. When he first came to Lancing as a new boy, over 70 years ago, the school was 66 years old, so that Lancing has been his life for more than half the life of Lancing. He deliberately delayed updating his original book because he would need to begin with the extraordinary story of the Blakiston crisis, which now he feels can be told.
