M AND M SUMMER OUTING 

AMBERLEY CHALK PIT MUSEUM AND ST MARY’S CHURCH                           

NORTH STOKE                                    SATURDAY 26th JUNE 2021 

After leaving Brighton  we will visit the Open Air Museum at the Amberley Chalk Pit Museum. This was originally used to mine chalk for the production of lime for mortar and cement but now houses many relics and rescued buildings illustrating the industrial past of SE England, especially concerning communication and transport. The exhibitions include an electrical hall,   a machine shop, a wheelwright shop, an ironmongers shop, a vintage garage, a telephone exchange, a fire station, a printing shop, a cobblers shop, the restored lime kilns and many more. We will be given an   introductory talk and you will be able to travel on a vintage bus and a narrow gage steam railway. Hopefully we can have lunch at the nearby Bridge Inn, Amberley. If not a light lunch can be had at the museum’s café or why not bring a pic nic. 

Before we go home we will visit St Mary’s Church, at nearby North Stoke which is owned by the Churches Conservation Trust. This Church has hardly been altered since medieval times and has wall paintings and medieval glass. We will be given a short conducted tour by the local church friends.
