Weald & Downland Living Museum, West Sussex

A short video to celebrate the launch of the National Lottery funded Gateway Project to create a fantastic new waterside café, shop and visitor centre.


Fourteen Ten worked with Weald & Downland on the launch publicity for the Gateway Project a £5.6 million National Lottery and donation funded refurbishment which includes a brand new waterside café, shop and visitor centre.

Located in the heart of the South Downs National Park, the award-winning Weald & Downland Living Museum has over 50 historic building exhibits and is designated by the Government for the outstanding importance of its collections. Exhibits include a medieval farmstead; a working watermill producing stoneground flour; exhibitions focusing on traditional building techniques and agriculture; historic gardens; farm livestock and a working Tudor kitchen.

The Museum runs a well-established schools programme and an award-winning adult learning programme of courses in building conservation and rural crafts. The café uses the Museum’s flour and the shop stocks flour, gifts and books. The modern Downland Gridshell houses the Museum’s building conservation centre and artefact collection; there is a daily tour at 1.30pm (when the Museum is open) and an appointments system for research visits to the collections.

We created this launch video to help bring their brand new updated offering to life.
