 Singleton Wealdland and Downland Museum

What the buildings of yesteryear used to look like. This superb collection of buildings at the Downland Museum near Chichester is very comprehensive. Many of them have had to be removed because of construction work,  then transported and reconstructed as they formerly where.

One can walk inside most of them. The houses are especially worth seeing inside. No central heating except the hearth, and lots of draughts, would like to live in one for a while to see what it was really like. No TV or radio either or nipping down to Asda when the food runs low. No bath or shower or toilet. You have to go outside. Survive ?!

it helped me with my homework

Colin  - You say that many of the buildings have had to be removed because of construction. In fact, all have been removed because of construction, road widening / building or, in at least one case, the building of a reservoir. It is museum policy only to remove buildings from their original site as a last resort, when they will be destroyed if not removed. They do a lot of training in building conservation and try to get historic buildings preserved on their original sites, if possible.
The buildings are less draughty inside than you might think. The windows are small and can be covered by a lattice or a wooden shutter if the wind is from the direction. At times, some of them can become quite stuffy with the fire going.
Where are these houses located. Some of them were interesting.?
