Just a minor apology for yesterday’s article, a couple of mis-types, now corrected. Once again, rushing to publish, but all sorted now hopefully.
Yesterday was a very windy day. The house in the picture, if you were to look at the map of the Weald & Downland Living Museum is R4 – The rural farmhouse house of Pendean. Alongside it’s garden. I said yesterday that the museum would have been so much more alive if all the houses were able to have tour guides, or actors within. They weren’t able to because of Covid, so please don’t take that as a criticism. There were members of staff outside each house, who were more than happy to discuss any aspect of a display. I do wonder what people will think of us in several hundred years time. Will they curse us for our profligacy?
I’m featuring this particular house because as we were walking away we heard a very loud crack, and then a crunch. It turns out that a very large branch had come down off a tree, from quite a height and had hit the corner of the house breaking and dislodging several roof tiles. This became one of several exhibits to be have damage caused by the wind. I confess we were a bit nervous walking through the wooded areas. It didn’t take away from our enjoyment.
There was one actor who was mostly in character, I think he was an Apothecary or a physician, he had medicines for treating ill people. It seemed like he quite relished telling us about plagues through the ages.
Today, the only time I have left the house was to do an run. apart from that it has been a lazy day. Not a lot more can be said about that really.
