Weald and Downland Museum

  • Visits

Thursday 7 October – We’re getting things up & running again

A dip into the past made a very fitting reminder of how things used to be on Moleside visits before the pandemic.  Though we felt it still prudent to avoid using our regular coach transport for our adventures, 19 of us took to our cars and enjoyed the bracing open air of The Weald & Downland Museum.

Feeling free again to experience together this growing collection of transplanted south country buildings from as far back as Anglo Saxon times proved a marvellous precursor to the restart of our complete Visits programme in November.


Organised by Steve Mustoe we were able not just to investigate the work of the craftsmen and volunteers who care for and develop this Living Museum but also to go behind the scenes into the amazing work space and storehouse of the collection.

What’s very clear is that there is a lot more the Weald & Downland already has to bring visitors like us back for years to come.
