1969/1SBC Minutes / 8 January 1969Current position on buildings provisionally accepted: d) Sole Street aisled hall / Situation unchanged. Decided that the rarity of this style of building should give its preservation a high priority.
1969/1SBC Minutes / 8 January 1969Current position on buildings provisionally accepted: e) Cheam Road, Ewell / The timbers, to be used as replacement material, are being collected in the next few days
1969/1SBC Minutes / 8 January 1969Current position on buildings provisionally accepted: f) Mockbeggar Old Hall, Cranbrook / The G.P.O. are prepared to take it down carefully, but the start is not imminent.
1969/1SBC Minutes / 8 January 1969Structures available for acquisition: b) Reconstruction of Celtic Iron Age farmstead / Reservations expressed on this proposal since it would involve a great deal of hypothetical reconstruction. In the present financial position it was thought that expenditure should be limited to the purpose of preserving threatened buildings. The question might be reconsidered should it be possible to contact a well-informed and well-equipped group of archaeologists prepared to take on the project.
1969/11SBC Minutes / 16 November 1969Littlehampton Granary / The staddle stones and sill breams are in position. It is hoped that the sponsored walk taking place today will produce
1969/11SBC Minutes / 16 November 1969Old Rectory, Burwash / Has been acquired by the Landmark Trust and will be re-erected under the supervision of R.T.Mason.
1969/11SBC Minutes / 16 November 1969Winkhurst / Roof being fitted with sprockets and covered with tiles. Tributes were paid to the skill, patience and ingenuity of Roger Champion in completing this first reconstruction.
1969/11SBC Minutes / 16 November 1969Tread Wheel, Catherington / Its condition and vulnerability call for speedy removal. There may be some conflict of interest with the new museum being created at Winchester, but Mr Armstrong will discuss this with a representative of Hampshire County Council.
1969/11SBC Minutes / 16 November 1969Preservative treatment of timbers / Favourable arrangements have been negotiated with Rentokil, who will be mentioning the museum in their advertising. Treatment of the Winkhurst timbers has been carried out free of charge.
1969/11SBC Minutes / 16 November 1969Mockbeggars / Post Office has agreed to cover the cost of dismantling, but may be unaware of the sum involved. It was suggested that the building be re-erected to its current appearance as an illustration of the process of modification to changes in use.
1969/11SBC Minutes / 16 November 1969Aisled Hall, Sole Street / AGREED to recommend to the Council of Management that a definite offer be made to the owner, of
1969/11SBC Minutes / 16 November 1969Cruck cottage, Boarhunt / A very dilapidated thatched cottage, one end being an open hall of cruck construction with purlin and windbrace roof. Although in poor condition, its rarity value makes this a most desirable building. RECOMMENDED that every effort be made to secure it if preservation in situ not possible.
1969/11SBC Minutes / 16 November 1969Wagon Shed, Horam / Five of the original six bays survive, but the roof is a rebuild. Already dismantled and has been offered by the owner as a gift. Suitable to complete the Bayleaf complex.
1969/11SBC Minutes / 16 November 1969Suggested reconstructions from excavation evidence / Replicas of a Saxon weaver's hut, based on an excavation at Erringham, and of a 13thC longhouse and two-roomed cottage, based on Hangleton evidence, might be constructed by volunteer labour at a cost of
1969/11SBC Minutes / 16 November 1969Netherhale / The Ministry of Housing are reconsidering the question of preservation in situ.
1969/5SBC Minutes / 30 May 1969Old Rectory, Burwash / This building constitutes a valuable record because of its unusual plan and the survival of interesting details. There are plans by Battle R.D.C. to demolish it and incorporate the most attractive features in the new building on its site. The Landmark Trust have proposed buying the timbers to re-erect at a suitable site in a modernised version with a view to letting it for housing. It is unlikely the Museum could succeed in raising funds locally or generally to finance its acquisition. AGREED that the preservation of isolated timbers in a quite foreign setting was undesirable, and that the plan of the Landmark Trust be supported. Mr Armstrong was asked to contact Mr John Smith, M.P., of the Landmark Trust, and if necessary to press for careful treatment to ensure the survival of the building's particular quality.
1969/5SBC Minutes / 30 May 1969Preservative Treatment of Timbers / Committee felt this is an urgent necessity and considered that suitable arrangements might be made with a reputable firm. Cuprinol and Rentokil have already been approached and the latter view the possibilities very sympathetically. Mr Rigold suggested Wykmol should be considered and undertook to contact them.
1969/5SBC Minutes / 30 May 1969Site inspection / Preparation of paths through the woodland and proposed sites for car parks and access from the Goodwood road were inspected. Mr Armstrong commented on the plan to plant trees in depth to screen the break in woodland resulting from the cutting of the road approach. Clearance of woodland is being carried out by volunteers. A bull-dozer has been hired to create the 'visibility splays' on the roadside.
1969/5SBC Minutes / 30 May 1969Netherhale / Mr Warren has succeeded in obtaining a very competitive tender for dismantling -
