As we did in 2013, the Society is supporting the annual awards scheme of the Sussex Heritage Trust, designed to recognise and reward high quality conservation and restoration, and good design in new-build projects, and encourage the use of traditional skills and crafts.
South Downs Society Special Commendations were presented earlier today at the Trust’s awards ceremony to two projects making a particular contribution to National Park purposes.
- The Ditchling Museum of Arts and Crafts which was an ambitious refurbishment coupled with new design that makes a significant contribution to understanding the National Park’s special qualities.
- Tithe Barn at Sullington Manor farm which has been sensitively restored to enable reuse as an outlet that contributes to the economy of the local community.
We would like to congratulate all those involved in these two projects.
