Douglas Kent from SPAB (Society for the protection of Ancient Buildings ) will be our speaker on historic constructions of walls and chimneys, with the forum starting at 3.00 p.m. albeit the museum and grounds will be open from 12 noon for interested parties.
Time permitting there will then be an open debate with a panel drawn from our ranks:
What is the point of Section 1(5). Access or no Access ?
There is an on-site cafeteria, which will be open to anyone who wants to purchase a meal prior to the forum. This is a great place for a picnic!
Tea and biscuits and soft drinks will be provided whilst attending the Forum.
Please take advantage of this educational venue to stroll around the historic buildings and grounds and network with your colleagues in an informal setting.
The buildings, which are fascinating, have been transported from various parts of southern England and re-erected on the site.
There is also a library where books on historic buildings and their construction can be purchased.
