Meetings and workshops

Programme of autumn-winter-spring indoor meetings

Our autumn-winter-spring meetings offers lectures and discussions on vernacular building recording topics. All are designed to be both entertaining and educational.

If you are not already a WBSG member, you will be welcome as a guest. The fee for guests is £5.

Unless stated otherwise, meetings are at Wivelsfield Church Hall, Church Lane, RH17 7RD. Church Lane is on the left off the A2112, north of the Baldocks Renault garage roundabout. The car park is on the left next to the church, and the hall is further up on the right.

We have currently suspended our physical Meetings, but are aiming to resume them as soon as possible in 2021. In the meantime we are arranging online talks via Zoom. If you want to register for one of these talks, please use the 'Contact' tab at the top. The Zoom invite will be sent to registered attendees a few days prior to the talk.

7pm Monday 22nd November 2021

Prof. Mark Gardiner: Buttery and Pantry; their development and long persistence

An exploration of why these two rooms developed at the low end of the hall, their function and why they persisted unchanged for so long.  Mark Gardiner is Professor of Medieval Archaeology at the School of History and Heritage, University of Lincoln and has a long-standing interest in the form and social use of medieval buildings.

There is no cost for WBSG members attending these talks.

The Winter Talks are also open to the Public, at a cost of £5
