Heritage Pathway: Site Visit to Weald and Downland Museum

We are delighted to announce that this term’s Heritage Pathway trip will take place at the Weald & Downland Living Museum. The Weald & Downland is an open-air museum with over fifty reconstructed domestic buildings dating from the medieval period through to the 19th century. The Museum was established as a way of preserving vernacular architecture, and places rural living at the heart of its storytelling. The site is also famously now home to BBC’s Repair Shop.  

During our visit, we will consider the museum site as a research resource and learn more generally about the ways in which this unique organisation is structured and managed. Our visit will include a tour of the Museum’s award-winning on-site artefact store, The Downland Gridshell, and a bespoke workshop addressing the curation of the site.

PLEASE NOTE: As the site is open to the elements, please wear sensible footwear and clothing (including rain coats).

Places are strictly limited and allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
