PEVENSEY COURT HOUSE MUSEUM and GAOL: Have been distributing a leaflet locally outlining some of the improvements you will start seeing this spring and winter. New heaters have been installed. The lower area and cells are being renovated and the old plaster and paint replaced with more suitable lime plaster and limewash. Also some windows and outer door. The outer wall is being repaired and drainage problems resolved hopefully in the spring.
All this has taken time for quotes, conservation permissions and experts to carry out the works which will cost £30- 40k
There is also free parking in the top car park, 250 free parking passes for local residents and businesses and the only two disabled (free) parking places in Pevensey!
Everything is paid for by a £2 Parking Fee (Pevensey Town Trust do not receive any taxpayers money) and all the trustees and volunteers are local people who give their time for free. Take a look at Pevensey Court house Facebook page
