1972/5SBC Minutes / 7 May 1972Museum Office Accommodation / AGREED that the museum should look out for a suitable building; perhaps an early house with later additions. Eventually the offices might have to occupy two buildings, possibly in the village group. The upstairs of the Crawley Barn was suggested for a library and Little Winkhurst was suggested as a possible office building.
1972/5Newsletter Number Four / May-Aug 1972An Award for the Museum / The Museum received a certificate of special recommendation from the British Tourist Authority. On Sunday 20th August we had a record of more than 1200 visitors.
1972/5SBC Minutes / 7 May 1972Bayleaf / Reported that the West Sussex Horticultural Society and the Bosham and Chidham Horticultural Society were creating a medieval garden and orchard around the house. 1,000 box cuttings were on order but the main planting could not be done until the autumn; plants and trees were to be a gift from the two societies. It was suggested that the pathway around Bayleaf should avoid the garderobe.
1972/7SBC Minutes / 16 July 1972Little Winkhurst / The possibility of providing office accommodation in this building was discussed at length. AGREED that the solar end, which was missing when the building was dismantled, should be replaced with a structure of suitable contemporary style on the exterior and an interior of a modern finish to provide accommodation for offices. It was felt strongly that the use of such space for offices should be a temporary measure, and that it might eventually become a library or research rooms. RECOMMENDED a) the re-erection of Little Winkhurst should be brought forward in the Museum works programme; b) it should be sited at the west side of the village group, in semi-isolation; c) the primary aim of the reconstruction should be the demonstration of the evolution of the building up to 1600, that the solar end should be designed to represent its probable original appearance, and that any other practical purpose should be subordinate to this intention.
1972/7SBC Minutes / 16 July 1972Roof of Winkhurst / Mr Champion reported that since the completion of Winkhurst he has examined many similar roofs and is now convinced that the holes in the rafter feet do not indicate side sprockets but rather are a device for fabricating the joints when rafters are used in pairs. Other evidence in the building suggests that thatch would be a more appropriate roof covering. Mr Armstrong was in agreement with this view. The Committee accepted this advice and RECOMMENDED that the sprockets should be removed and the tiles replaced by straw thatch as early as convenient.
1972/7SBC Minutes / 16 July 1972Tilthammer / There was general agreement that this exhibit justified improved treatment. Messrs. Warren, Armstrong and Newell will consult the Curator of Horsham Museum.
1972/7SBC Minutes / 16 July 1972Master Plan for the Site / As a conclusion to the general discussion during previous meetings, the Committee decided upon specific positions for buildings already in store and potential sites for future acquisitions. The details were carried on to a plan which will be presented to the next meeting.
1972/7SBC Minutes / 16 July 1972Barn at Kingston near Lewes / Although it was appreciated that this barn represented an early structure with rare features and a strong local character, it was AGREED that the problems of its incomplete and altered condition are beyond the Museum's resources at this juncture.
1972/7SBC Minutes / 16 July 1972Hambrook Barn / Committee RECOMMENDS that large doors appropriate to the existing openings in the flank walls should be installed and that a pattern for these should be taken from barns in the neighbourhood of Hambrook. Within these large doors, two wickets should be formed to serve for entry and exit of visitors - thus avoiding the need for the large doors to be left open.
