J C Buckler was an esteemed architect, coming second to Charles Barry in the competition for the design of the new Houses of Parliament in 1836. However, his greatest passion was recording the details of historical buildings. ⁠

‘With such subjects before me as cathedrals, abbeys and ancient parish churches…I never made any effort to increase the number of my employments as an architect.’ Buckler 1852⁠

Harmoniously working with his father and younger brother, Buckler drew and preserved the designs of ancient structures, many of which no longer survive today. ⁠

Horham Hall is stands as a fortunate exception.⁠
