The residents (and staff) were fascinated to learn more about the items found in the roof space and so a trip to Steyning Museum was arranged.
Mike and Sue escorted one of our residents to the museum who were equally as excited about the finds.
The gentleman’s cane they believe dates to around the 18th – 19th century – it has a Hallmark but because of the wear is difficult to read – we shall investigate some more – watch this space!
The horses stirrup was more difficult to date, however they were intrigued as to why it was placed in the roof – maybe someone can shed some light on this?
Thank you to Steyning Museum for spending the time with us and if you haven’t been the resident that went highly recommend a visit.
