Pendean Farmhouse
Pendean Farmhouse
This hall house was originally built at Midhurst, Sussex in 1609. Instead of an open hall there is a central chimney with fireplaces on both ground and first floors. It retains some features from sixteenth century practice, such as unglazed windows. The building has a timber frame, with brick infill to the ground floor and wattle and daub infill to the first floor. It was re-erected at the museum in 1975 but the discovery of a postcard showing the building at its original site showed that the chimney had not been reconstructed correctly. The chimney was rebuilt in January 2001 to a more accurate profile. The house is furnished as though it was still 1609 LinkExternal link
Weald and Downland Open Air Museum
