I'm afraid I may have just misaposptrophised Normans Helmet. It surely needed one but was it a Norman's or The Normans'.

Shirley: Neither. I understand the rather odd sculpture was given to the town by Sir Bufton Tufton (our former MP Tufton Beamish) to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the Batle of Lewes in1964. Not Norman's or Normans' at all, and nothing to do with Sir Bufton's successor but one as MP.
The sculpture looks best after dark if someone lights a yacht flare inside it..

Although I completely disagree with his political allegiances ,Sir Tufton Beamish was also responsible for "The Tufty Club". Road Safety Campaign. Much derided, it was the forerunner of the "Green Cross Code" and taught in primary schools everywhere. I sometimes wonder if that alongside the "cycling proficiency test " it might just be one of the reasons I'm still here to tell the tale.
