The Weald and Downland Open Air Museum
Singleton, Near Chichester, West Sussex

This all day visit has been organised for us by Jonathan Treleaven,
a Section member who has been actively involved with the museum of
late.  The day will comprise a guided tour, by the curator, of the
recently completed timber framed building projects, including the
re-erected  Whittakers Cottages and the purpose built woodshed
attached to the Bayleaf Medieval Farmstead. There will also be a
chance to observe and discuss an on-going building project with the
museum's carpenter/restorer at the on site workshop.  The project is
Poplar Cottage, a sixteenth century smoke-bay house.

Other permanent displays of traditional building materials and
techniques and regular demonstrations may also be of interest. We
hope to arrange lunch as a group at the pub three minutes walk away.
If no,there is an on site cafe.

Cost:  Pound Sterling: 11.00  excluding lunch. We will circulate the
list of participants when fully booked, so that cars may be shared.
The nearest station is Chichester, a 15 minute taxi drive from the
museum.
