Weald and Downland Living Museum

On the edge of the Sussex Downs a Living Museum. A very wet day!

The Weald and Downland Museum was launched in 1967 by a group of enthusiasts led by  Dr. J.R. Armstrong MBE. The principal aim of the group was to establish a centre that could rescue  examples of vernacular buildings from the South East of England. Staffed by among others a large number of volunteers, the museum is a fantastic place to explore what we have tried desperately to destroy in our pursuit of architectural excellence. It seems we sometimes should look back to take a step forward.
