 Date   Origin   Summary 
1973/1SBC Minutes / 28 January 1973Cottage at Reigate / Notified by Miss Harding. Has been severely damaged by fire and is not suitable for collection by the museum.
1973/1SBC Minutes / 28 January 1973Treatment of Bayleaf curtilage / AGREED a garden around Bayleaf would not stand up to the number of visitors, nor was it likely to be historically accurate. An orchard would be more realistic and practical. The curtilage should be defined with a simple hedge and laid out informally with species as near as possible to contemporary ones. Detailed arrangements are left to the decision of Messrs. Armstrong, Lowe, Zeuner, Newell and Mrs Hallam.
1973/1SBC Minutes / 28 January 1973Metalling of road across site / The cost will be about one thousand pounds. For this reason and so that the ground may dry out, the work will be deferred until the summer.
1973/1SBC Minutes / 28 January 1973Saxon hall / The drawings presented to the Committee indicate an almost complete framework and would appear to be a more substantial structure than had been envisaged.
1973/1SBC Minutes / 28 January 1973The Master Plan / Some misgivings were voiced but discussion was hampered by the absence of Mr Warren. The Committee was concerned in case the detail shown in certain areas of the map might create a wrong impression in the Planning Authority. AGREED: the plan be endorsed "sites are diagrammatic and the actual location of each will be subject to individual application for approval; the area west of site 9 be marked 'unallocated' except for indication of the position of Hangleton cottage and the proposed site for a glasshouse; the area of woodland east of site 9 be marked "subject to landscaping". Mr Lowe agreed to present these amendments to the Council of Management.
1973/1SBC Minutes / 28 January 1973Crawley building / A committee to organise a local appeal has been set up.
1973/1SBC Minutes / 28 January 1973Titchfield Market Hall / After considerable discussion, it was AGREED that as a matter of principle the appearance of a museum building should, so far as possible, represent its original state, and the museum reconstructions should not be used to demonstrate uncertainties nor the variety of possible interpretations - although these should be fully explained in literature. Mr Lowe suggested this was particularly important in the case of the market hall since it would always be one of the most important and visually outstanding of the museum's buildings. The following details were AGREED: a) the bay-posts - should be timber and seated on a stone pad. The Committee accepted that it may be necessary to replace one original corner post; b) treatment of east end bay: north wall - to be infilled with brick, without a middle rail; west wall (partition) - to have full-height studs with brick infilling; east wall - to be as in diagram 3, on both sides of the doorway; gallery - to have brick infilling below the rai \\
