Munstead Wood will need to remain closed for an indefinite period whilst the fundraising and feasibility projects move to completion and we can commence work to get us to the point of opening. We recognise that in the meantime we need a place where we can welcome the local community to come and talk to us about the future of Munstead Wood. Where better, than the Gertrude Jekyll gallery at Godalming Museum. We invite you to come and find us there at one of our future Saturday morning sessions.

Chance-to-Chat sessions at Godalming Museum 10 – 12 noon Third Saturday of every month.

Whilst we currently can't welcome people here, we still want to provide easy and open access for people to come and talk to us about the project at Munstead Wood. So, we are delighted that Godalming Museum have kindly provided us with the opportunity to have regular monthly sessions on a Saturday morning.

These mornings will be very informal drop-in sessions where you can talk to one of the Munstead Team in the Gertrude Jekyll gallery, on the ground floor of the Museum.

Godalming Museum can be found at the top of the High Street adjacent to the old town hall building commonly known as the Pepperpot. The Museum has some fascinating exhibits relating to both Gertrude Jekyll and Edwin Lutyens and the wider history of Godalming.

Jack Phillips the wireless operator on the Titanic, was another famous Godalming resident who is also remembered at the Museum and the nearby Phillips memorial garden was designed by Jekyll in 1912 to mark his memory.

So why not come one Saturday, armed with your questions, thoughts and/or recollections about Munstead Wood and explore the larger collections of the Museum afterwards. All are welcome and refreshments will be available.
