Cuckfield

Cuckfield Museum’s new display ‘Ringing the Changes’ looks at the history of Holy Trinity Church over the last two hundred years since bells were cast to celebrate the victory at the Battle of Waterloo. We see how the Victorians transformed the interior of the church and how fire later destroyed the old medieval spire. We go up into the secret world of the bell tower and see what lies hidden beneath the floor of the nave. Display runs until mid Dec. Opening times: Wed 10-12.30, Fri and Sat 10-4.

Cuckfield Museum’s next talk will be on Thursday, 15th October, 8.00 pm in the Council Chamber, The Queens Hall, Cuckfield. “Longcase Clocks of Sussex” by Stephen Doerr, Antiquarian Horologist. Stephen, a member of the “Worshipful Company of Clockmakers”, presents a fascinating exploration of the history of provincial longcase (grandfather) clocks spanning 1690-1840 with particular reference to some local makers. The talk will include the origin of the early 30 hour (one day) clock with brass dial to the development of the painted dial. Admission £5, Members £3. To book a place, please phone Mike Nicholson on 457448. For more information go to www.cuckfieldmuseum.org
