From country houses, churches and castles to humble farm buildings, cottages and mills, this useful guide identifies a wide variety of traditional building methods and styles in England. Illustrated with photographs and line drawings, the book examines how and why buildings were constructed in a particular way, the evolution of styles over the centuries, the regional variations caused by local conditions and available materials, and also what we can learn about how people lived from the buildings they constructed.
