Weald and Downland Museum Visit and Tour

Weald and Downland Museum 01

A group of clients from First Base Day Centre visited the Weald and Downland Museum near Chichester to learn about building conservation and how building styles have developed through the ages.

We were lucky enough to have a fantastic volunteer guide from the museum called Brian who stayed with us all day and made sure we got the most from our visit.

It is a large site with lots of buildings to see which have been moved to the site from all over the South-East. The working water mill was a particular favourite and the furnished houses had people talking about moving in.

A brilliant day! Really interesting and great to get out of Brighton for the day.

A fascinating day and great to see some of the old buildings being restored and cared for.

I’ve never thought about what happens to old buildings after they have been pulled down so it is great to see where some of them end up.

BHT Clients Visit the Royal Pavilion

Royal Pavilion

On Tuesday 5th March a group of 16 clients from First Base Day Centre visited the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.

The First Base building, St Stephen’s Hall was once the chapel to the Royal Pavilion, and was connected by a passage way from the table decker’s room.

BHT Heritage visits the Royal Pavilion twice a year as part of our programme of events for BHT client involvement.

For many clients it was the first time they had ever been inside this famous Brighton landmark. Here’s what they had to say:

I learnt new things about our heritage and the connection to St Stephen’s Hall.

The visit was genuinely eye-opening, absolutely fascinating, and I want to go a few more times now. Very well worth doing.
