(3704 Records)

 Date   Origin   Summary 
1971/9SBC Minutes / 12 September 1971Chilcomb Granary / Mr Armstrong reported that the owner of the Chilcomb Granary was pressing for its removal. Although the frame would need considerable repair it was a type of granary needed by the museum. Committee RECOMMENDED that Mr Armstrong try to acquire the granary but persuade the owner to postpone dismantling until next year if the museum would patch up the roof.
1971/9SBC Minutes / 12 September 1971Bignor Stable / Mr Armstrong and Mr Newell reported that this building would provide suitable accommodation for the wheelwright's shop if in re-building it at the museum a centre bay were added to provide additional space to exhibit the wheelwright's equipment. Mr Lowe stressed the importance of having sufficient space for the public to circulate easily. Some members thought it would be against the basic principles of the museum to add an extra bay and that the museum should wait for a more suitable building. In the meantime Mr Lowe agreed to inspect the stable to see if it would be suitable for the museum's shop. Mr Lowe suggested that the Hambrook Barn might be suitable for the wheelwright's shop and it was AGREED to reconsider the whole matter at the next meeting.
1971/9SBC Minutes / 12 September 1971Master Plan for the Museum Site / The Chairman suggested that the time had come to consider a master plan for the future development of the museum site. This was AGREED and the Chairman promised to send to all members two maps of the site and a Schedule of Building Reconstruction so that they could prepare to discuss the Master Plan at their next meeting; the final plan to be submitted to the West Sussex County Council Planning Officer.
1971/9SBC Minutes / 12 September 1971Little Woolborough Barn / Mr Armstrong reported that he had examined this barn and that it was too heavily restored to make it acceptable. He did feel that every effort be made to salvage the tiles, bricks and floor boards. The Committee RECOMMENDED that the Director and Mr Armstrong try to find the necessary resources to save these materials.
1971/9SBC Minutes / 12 September 1971Siting of the Village Group / NB: a Memorandum was incorporated within the Agenda for this meeting from the Working Party to consider the siting of the Village Group following their two meetings. The Memorandum proposed possible sites: "The Gonville Site" and "The Lake Site". (See hard copy or PDF). The Committee considered the merits and drawbacks of both sites and after lengthy discussion (see hard copy or PDF) RECOMMENDED to the Council of Management that the village group should be erected on the Gonville Site.
1971/9SBC Minutes / 12 September 1971Co-option to the Committee / Unanimously AGREED that Mr George Newell be co-opted.
1971/7SBC Minutes / 25 July 1971Chilcomb Granary / Attractive small granary with brick infill and tiled roof. Needs a lot of repair. RECOMMENDED to acquire but to persuade owner to keep for time being and to patch broken roof.
1971/7SBC Minutes / 25 July 1971Hangleton House / The altered site was AGREED but it was RECOMMENDED that these reconstructions be concealed when possible. Also that Mr Warren must be consulted on all siting decisions.
1971/7SBC Minutes / 25 July 1971Titchfield Old Market Hall / Mr Lowe explained the latest position, that the building had been acquired and financed and that Mr Greiner was undertaking the dismantling and re-erection.
1971/7SBC Minutes / 25 July 1971Ruth Cottage / Mr Armstrong reported that a man in Hastings was prepared to take this building and re-erect it carefully. It was RECOMMENDED that the museum should not pursue this building but should recommend to the East Sussex County Council that the new owner might covenant it through the National Trust or have it listed by the Ministry to ensure its future.
1971/7SBC Minutes / 25 July 1971Crawley Barn / Mr Armstrong reported that the position was unchanged and development permission was still not granted.
1971/7SBC Minutes / 25 July 1971Hambrook Barn / This 17thC aisled barn is in good condition and the museum can have it at any time. RECOMMENDED that No.2 priority be given to this barn after Silver Hill Barn.
1971/7SBC Minutes / 25 July 1971Little Woolborough Barn / Position unchanged. A small Wealden barn, tiled and in exceptional condition. Thought to be ideal for the museum shop.

1971/7SBC Minutes / 25 July 1971Lurgashall Mill / This is an early 17thC stone and brick mill, with Terwick the most interesting in Sussex. It is now fairly certain that Terwick will remain in situ. The Sussex Arch. Soc. have offered to take this mill machinery for use at Michelham Priory, but probably the W.S. County Council would prefer the museum to take both building and mill. The Committee RECOMMENDED museum acquire the mill if it could raise the necessary money and not offend the Sussex Arch.Soc.

1971/7SBC Minutes / 25 July 1971Revised Site Planning / Mr Warren explained how the acquisition of the Titchfield Old Market Hall had brought forward the need to consider the siting and creation of a village group. He explained that the County Planning Officer would oppose the site beyond the blacksmith's forge. Mr Armstrong put forward four possible sites; beyond the forge; to the south of the forge; to the east of the forge nearer the entrance; in the centre of the main meadow between the large clump of trees and Gonville Cottage. It was RECOMMENDED that the overall planning of the site, the siting of the a village group and the placing of the market hall be studied by a sub-committee composed of: Messrs. Jefferis, Wood, Heymann, Lowe, Armstrong and Warren. Note attached to minutes: This sub-committee met twice in August 1971.
