The Deans traditional shop blind is one of our key commercial awnings and has been for over three centuries for its strength and integrity as well as its faithfulness to the original John Dean design of the 1890s. This example has been installed at the Fitzcane’s in the beautiful village of Midhurst, Sussex. The awning features hardwood timbers to the awning box and lath with blue covers picked out in white text.

There are 94 buildings in Midhurst listed with Historic England as having special architectural or historic interest, while the earthworks and ruins of St. Ann’s Castle have been designated as a Scheduled Monument. The Parish Church of St. Mary Magdalene and St. Denis and the Spread Eagle Hotel are both listed Grade II*, while the remainder are Grade II. At least 42 of the listed buildings are in the Old Town. Of the listed buildings two recognisably predate 1500; six are 16th century; 30 are 17th century; 32 are 18th century; 22 are early 19th century; one is from 1841–1880; and one (a telephone box) is from 1914–45. As this is a K6 model, introduced in 1935, it must date from the latter decade of this period
