PEVENSEY COURT HOUSE: You may notice work going on in the High Street. The Gaol area is having some of the old plaster removed and re-plastered with new lime plaster and then limewash -re-instated as it is supposed to be. Its all a long process, the temperatures evidently have to be above 5 degrees and the lime plaster needs putting on in several layers and then the coats of limewash. Just shows how building work in the past involved a lot more than a trip down to the DIY store. This year the Court House will have been open for 50 years as a Museum, so when it reopens at Easter do go along and take a look or if you fancy being a volunteer and getting into Gaol for an afternoon or two then please get in touch.
