Public Library, Knockhundred Row, Midhurst
Grade II Listed 17th century or earlier building, formerly four cottages in a single timber framed building. It was used as a Working Mens Club and in 1936 as a Girl's Club. During WW2 this was a reception centre for city evacuees escaping the bombing and became a library in 1946. Described as "the most picturesque library in Britain" until the new library opened in the new Grange Centre on 31st March 2014. It is now home to the Midhurst Town Council. Students assisted the Council in the refurbishment that included repainting the main Tudor part of the building in conservation grade paint up to the eaves height.
