Guided Walks - Cuckfield Museum Evening Strolls

Cuckfield is an attractive village with an interesting history.  We are privileged to be able to share some of its delights by offering guided walks and/or talks, which may also include a visit to the museum – an ideal summer evening out.

Our scheduled walks have now finished for the year but please contact us on visits@cuckfieldmuseum.org if you would like to book one for your group.

School Visits

School visits to the museum are, of course always welcomed but please do give us as much notice as possible so that we can be sure to accommodate you and meet your requirements.

We are also able to support children’s learning by visits to schools that incorporate specific objects, or include people with first hand experience of times past.

To arrange a visit, please contact us on outreach@cuckfieldmuseum.org.

Other Visits

If you would like to visit the museum outside our normal opening hours, either as a group or individually, we will make every effort to accommodate you.  Please contact us on visits@cuckfieldmuseum.org.

Cuckfield Royal Observer Corps Post

 

In 1962 an underground bunker was built near Cuckfield churchyard as part of the Royal Observer Corps Post.  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. They open it to the public on a few selected days in the year.

The photo shows Ed Combes and Mark Russell with Lin Wood whose husband Derek was a member of the Cuckfield Post from 1947-1983 and who ran the Post for 15 years.

 

The Cuckfield Royal Observer Corps Post will open on the following dates:

    Sunday 9th June - 10 to 1pm
    Saturday 20th July - 11-4pm
    Sunday 21st July - 10-2pm
    Sunday 25th Aug - 10-2pm
    Bank Holiday Monday 26th Aug - 10-1pm

Mark Russell and Ed Combes will be showing visitors around the ROC Cold War Nuclear Bunker.  No booking necessary.
