 Yr/Mo   Origin   Summary 
1984/12SBC Minutes / 5 December 1984Horsham Shop / C Zeuner reported on some design changes to the Horsham Shop proposals as presented in drawing form to the Committee. These included the dropping of the roof line for the adjoining staircase to a lower level. The effect could be seen clearly outside, and it had been agreed that this change had been for the better. Further slight alterations had been made to comply with fire regulations, but in fact these had resulted in less expenditure.

1984/12SBC Minutes / 5 December 1984North Cray - Interpretation / C Zeuner reported the timber framework and infilling was nearly completed. He stressed the importance of interpretation of the later building phases, i.e. the insertion of the smoke bay. Richard Harris reported that at the time of dismantling the building there was no recording made of the inserted partition incorporating the smoke bay. He suggested putting a display explaining the structural alterations in the upper room in the parlour end of the building. The general opinion of the Committee was that the smoke bay partitions should be inserted and the open hall retained. C Zeuner felt that there was a need for furnishing the building. He suggested a new approach using stage set methods. Richard Harris was concerned that this would incur more expense than the use of photographs. It was generally felt that the Museum should experiment with a stage set approach, but the hall would initially be the best position for interpretive panels in the viewing space area. Richard \\
1984/12SBC Minutes / 5 December 1984Two granaries offered to the Museum / It was reported that the Museum had been offered two small granaries, one of which could be used to service the Mill. They were of a granary type that the Museum does not yet show. One is at Graylingwell, Chichester, which is 10' square on 5 staddles, the other is 14' square on 9 staddles and located at West Ashling. AGREED the building from West Ashling would be accepted as it was in better condition and more accessible.
1984/2SBC Minutes / 27 February 1984Further discussion on Reigate/Horsham buildings / R Harris, aided by a set of drawings, outlined the Reigate/Horsham Shop building scheme, adapting the proposals made at the last meeting. By moving the Horsham Shop 4'6" away from the Crawley Building a staircase could be fitted with bookstore beneath within this space, providing access to a toilet and kitchen. Public toilets would be built at the rear of the Horsham Shop. Queries included the use of the area below the mezzanine floor. Could this be used for a heating plant? The position of the doors in relation to the stairs in the vicinity of the main public access was queried. This would not be changed unless challenged by the Planners. Mrs Hallam commented that on its original site the Horsham Shop had a 2-bay Tudor extension against the rear elevation. She expressed concern at the impact of the modern toilet outshott. Richard Harris commented that he personally felt that the outshott was formally wrong. Mr McDowall suggested altering the shap \\
