Having suffered the tragedy of burning almost fully to the ground in 2006 the Grade II 17th Century 'picture postcard' property that is Sessions House has - like a Phoenix rising from the ashes - been painstakingly rebuilt and restored by the present owner to its former glory with the walls reconstructed using historic photographs for reference and salvaged local stone from the site. The external shiplap cladding is locally sourced Elm from Midhurst forest specifically for this renovation, the thatch being locally grown combed wheat straw, fixed using traditional hazel spars (put on in 2015). The entire re-build has where required been carried out using many specific materials and techniques such as horsehair mixed lime plaster, lathe and plaster internal walls decorated using lime wash paint, Oak beams and with all the work carried out in conjunction with English Heritage.
