Overview
-

Timber framed buildings, whether they are medieval halls, barns, grand houses, or picturesque cottages, form one of the most delightful features of our historic towns and countryside. They catch our imagination as we admire the skill and craft of the carpenters who created them, with a strength and quality that has seen many of them survive for over six centuries. Using his own photographs, drawings and detailed diagrams, Trevor Yorke helps us to understand what such buildings may have originally looked like, the challenging technology behind their construction, how they have changed over the years, and the details by which we can date them. He also lists some of the prime examples that are open to the viewing public.
