It formed part of the Cold War early warning system and stayed in place until 1991 when the Post was closed. Mark Russell and Ed Combes have restored the bunker to how it would have looked at closure.

Cuckfield NSPCC: held their open gardens at the end of June. It was a very successful afternoon with lots of visitors enjoying the 11 open gardens and delicious teas. £2,000 was raised to add to the £1,500 from the plant sale in May. The committee would like to thank everyone who supported these two events and in particular those who generously opened their gardens to visitors.

Ways of Seeing: July - September 2015: For our summer main display, the Cuckfield Museum is once again delighted to welcome second year Design & Craft students from Brighton University to exhibit items they have made, inspired by objects in our collection and by their field trips to Cuckfield’s New England Wood.. The students visited the Museum twice earlier in the year , before our Spring re-opening, to take a close look at items normally kept behind glass or in storage. Their work, in a variety of materials, is shown alongside the objects which caught their imagination and the accompanying texts explain in detail how each individual student approached this subject. The Museum opening times are Wed 10-12.30 and now Fri 10-4pm and Sat 10-4pm
