Weald and Downland Museum

The Weald and Downland Living Museum in West Sussex has rural homes and buildings set in a lovely landscape in the South Downs National Park. The collection of historic buildings tells stories of the people who lived and worked over 1,000 years ago. It is a journey through old England.

Bayleaf as shown above is a timber frame house dating back to the 15th Century. It was taken from Chiddingstone in Kent and reconstructed on the Weald and Downland Museum site. The open hall is of two bays. Its first floor is not large but its height creates a sense of grandeur. Behind the hall is the parlour which was considered the most important room in the house. It has six rooms, four on the ground floor and two upstairs.

The Museum is host to the TV programme The Repair Shop which shows skilled craftsmen taking on a range of projects helping people restore their treasured possessions.

My next holiday trip will be to Australia from 13 October back in the shop on 15 November.
