Amberley Museum is home to a unique collection of listed buildings and scheduled ancient monuments, many were rescued from Sussex and represent life in the area.
The Fairmile Cafe, Arundel gin building, and Hove ticket office all have a story to tell. From June 2011 onward, the refurbished De Witt Kilns open with a new exhibition 'Life and Lime at Amberley' I remember working on clearance around the kilns as a day volunteer when the museum first opened. It has changed hugely since then, but glad I played a small part!!
The striking cliffs and beauty of the South Downs setting provide a perfect museum location.
Here's just a few things to visit in 2011;
The Southdown Bus Garage
Narrow Gauge Railway
Steam Road Vehicles
Vintage Wireless Exhibition
Stained Glass maker
The calendar events for 2011 commence from the February half term holidays and through the year include vintage car shows, veteran and classic motorcycle shows, steam weekends, heavy horses and woodland crafts, a commercial vehicle day and a Harley Davidson day to name but a few!
Have a look at the museum via our Places to visit pages on the website.
We have many self catering holiday cottages in West Sussex that are ideally placed for a day's enjoyment at this very popular museum.
