Museum History
(3704 Records)

 Date   Origin   Summary 
1972/5SBC Minutes / 7 May 1972Kirdford Sheds / AGREED to erect separately with wicket gate in between the two sections.
1972/5SBC Minutes / 7 May 1972Crawley Barn / To be dismantled about mid-July, possibly by Mr Greiner. During the discussion about future work it was strongly RECOMMENDED that Mr Champion should have an assistant as soon as possible. Priority between the barn and Pendean could not be settled until the Committee knew of Mr Greiner's intentions. Mr Lowe reported that he could probably get a V & A grant on both buildings.
1972/5SBC Minutes / 7 May 1972Goodwood Granary / Decided not to accept the granary or the materials for the museum.
1972/5SBC Minutes / 7 May 1972Chilcomb Granary / Has been dismantled but half of the materials still have to be collected.
1972/5SBC Minutes / 7 May 1972Lipscombe Cottage / Mr Warren has applied to have this building listed. AGREED that it should remain in situ and was not suitable for the museum.
1972/5SBC Minutes / 7 May 1972Bexley House / Is in store and it was AGREED to wait to see what Bexley would do.
1972/5SBC Minutes / 7 May 1972West Dean Estate land / Mr Lowe reported that the Estate had generously agreed to exchange land giving room for the village group.
1972/5Newsletter Number Four / May-Aug 1972Dear Member / Record attendances despite bad weather. 1700 on Whit Monday.
1972/5Newsletter Number Four / May-Aug 1972Your Newsletter / We regret that few people offer contributions. Also that we can't supply tea.
1972/5Newsletter Number Four / May-Aug 1972Schoolchildren at the Museum / School parties have been encouraged and Kim Leslie has written an excellent Guide for Young People and a Handbook for Teachers. Coach parking is problem.
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.
1972/2SBC Minutes / 27 February 1972Development Plan conclusions - Boarhunt cruck cottage / At southwest corner of ultimate site, (i.e. after exchange of lands with West Dean Estate), on edge of woodland. It was stressed that this building must be in a zone representing the chalkland building traditions.
1972/2SBC Minutes / 27 February 1972Development Plan conclusions - Little Winkhurst / To the west of Winkhurst, thus preserving the natural association between the three buildings originating at Boughbeech.
1972/2SBC Minutes / 27 February 1972Development Plan conclusions - Paths and lanes / AGREED that a lane was required from Bayleaf group to or through the eventual site of the village, with a branch lane going directly to Hambrook barn and the car park.
1972/2SBC Minutes / 27 February 1972Development Plan conclusions - Pendean / South of Bayleaf, on the verge of the clearing in the woodland.
1972/2SBC Minutes / 27 February 1972Development Plan - car-parking / Mr Heymann referred to the necessity at times for cars to be parked within the exhibition area, either as overflow from the existing car park or because volunteers were working at scattered points. Once again, it was generally AGREED that the parking of cars near the exhibits was most undesirable. However, volunteer work often necessitated persons having their card near them. Mr Lowe said that for the present the official car park would be adequate for visitors except for a very few days in a season. A small overflow somewhere in the entry area is possible and may be necessary very occasionally. Ultimately, it will probably be necessary to build two more terraces above the present car park. The difficulties concerning the parking of volunteers' cars were discussed at some length. It may prove to be advisable to construct small supplementary car parks behind the Bayleaf group of buildings, under the trees by the track to the charcoal burner's camp, and possibly in the \\
1972/2SBC Minutes / 27 February 1972Workshop / Planning permission is being sought to the erection of a workshop to the west of Bayleaf. The sectional building is on site.
1972/2SBC Minutes / 27 February 1972Hambrook Barn / Mr Armstrong reported that it is necessary for the building to be taken down immediately.
1972/2SBC Minutes / 27 February 1972Tree screen / Planting is taking place to thicken the screening from the Chichester road.
1972/2SBC Minutes / 27 February 1972Development Plan / As previously agreed, most of the meeting was devoted to compiling a long-term site plan which would enable Executive officers to plan further ahead and to be in a position to foresee future planning requirements when negotiating with the Planning Authority. Mr Warren provided a detailed map of the site showing possible positions for the buildings which are already available and potential sites for future acquisitions. To some extent discussion was hampered by uncertainty about the site of the village group. Application has been made for planning approval for this on Site 1. There was agreement on the siting of buildings which are already in store or which the Museum is likely to acquire in the near future. (See following ten entries in this database). Mr Warren undertook to carry these conclusions on to a plan to be presented to the next meeting of the Committee for final approval. The plan would also give some detail of the tree-planting and site arrangement in the area between the \\
