|1986/12||SBC Minutes / 17 December 1986||Director's Report / The Director explained that his report had been presented to the Friends at their AGM. Their principal concerns related to the location of the entrance facilities and shop. It had been agreed that a site higher up the site than the Toll Cottage area was essential to ensure efficient use of the car parks. Since that meeting a suggestion had been put forward that Hambrook Barn should be used as the entrance point and shop. Thus suggestion seemed to provide an answer for the foreseeable future. Professional advice would be sought regarding the layout of the interior. Richard Harris assured those present that no alteration would be made to the structure of the barn. Mr Armstrong was concerned that the building would be draughty and cold for those working there, but the Director recommended that glass doors were introduced either side of the building. Mr Armstrong was also concerned that once admitted through Hambrook Barn, and with the Toll Gate closed off, visitors would be unable \\|

|1986/12||SBC Minutes / 17 December 1986||Winkhurst Farm / Richard Harris and Roger Champion had taken the opportunity to re-examine the interpretation of this building. Richard Harris referred to the report he had produced, and which had been circulated previously to the Committee, and discussion on the interpretation of the building followed. Following the suggestion that the building should be moved from its present site, the Director felt that the only alternative was into the Bayleaf area, but this would detract from the feeling of isolation in that part of the site. John Warren felt that the building should remain in its present situation. AGREED that one or two bays should be cut into the hill to the south of the building, and this should house a full interpretation of the history of Winkhurst. AGREED that Richard Harris should pursue his investigations into this building and further proposals be brought to the next meeting.|
