Much of Britain's architectural heritage was fashioned not by architects but by jobbing builders, using methods passed down through the generations. Extensively illustrated with photographs, maps, plans and elevations, this lucid guide explains the historical development and regional variations of vernacular architecture. It explores the various building types – from manor houses to cottages, farms to industrial premises – construction methods and materials, and decorative details, while the appendices explain how to research the subject, make detailed records and carry out surveys.
