Standen House ( National Trust) 7th July  West Hoathly Rd, East Grinstead, Sussex RH19 4NE

James, Fionn and Nick on their lathes in a beautiful timber framed building.

Nick Bertenshaw was volunteering some ago and helped in the original construction. This was the first (not the last we hope) APTGW meeting held on one of their open days.  


I was hiding in camouflage in the wood store.
There were not hordes of visitors and this area was some walk across afield from the main building.

Having said that the people we saw stayed around us for some time.

The nettle and willow string making (no picture sorry) was a great way of getting the public engaged in a safe practical activity, especially the children.
