The Wealden Building Study Group might be interested in visiting your old house or barn. You could learn a lot about the history and construction of the building. They have a waiting list, and are currently formulating their April to October 2018 visits programme. Click the image to download their flyer.
Saddlescombe Farm is run by tenant farmers, Camilla and Rory Puzey who open their doors to the public for lambing weekends and educational visits throughout the year. They also offer a unique Shepherd for the Day experience and Green Gym sessions which encourage people to get fit by doing conservation work. The couple say the shepherding idea came from a friend. The idea quickly developed and now the farm holds a variety of shepherding experiences for individuals, couples and families — there are even corporate team building events which conclude with a Shepherding Challenge.
