Boarhunt Hall Hall, now at the Weald and Downland Museum

The hall from Boarhunt probably dates from the 15th century. It is a small but well-built example of a medieval open hall. The main feature of the building is the central roof truss of the open hall, which is an example of "cruck'' construction; a cruck is a long curved timber which rises from the ground to support the roof timbers. The bay to the right of the entrance was probably the service room. The inner room beyond the end of the hall is a conjectural reconstruction of the medieval solar.
