From Field, To Fork, To Lockdown


The South Downs has been associated with farming since records began. This new exhibition looks at farming within the South Downs and how it has changed over the years, from the farming practices of ancient communities through to farming in the 21st century.

It also explores how global food demand, technology and the recent global pandemic have impacted on farming today, as well as what we as a community can do to help support the local farming industry. 

The Novium Museum team worked with people and organisations across the district and the South Downs to explore our relationship with food in a new short documentary film, which will be showcased alongside the exhibition.

This exhibition is kindly supported by South Downs National Park Authority.
