Summary This title offers a detailed overview of traditional buildings from Anglo-Saxon times to the 19th century, based on detailed reports undertaken on over hundred individual buildings in the region over the last decade. The authors describe cruck buildings, barns, moated sites, manor houses, town and village houses, farm buildings and 19th century model farms, brewing and public houses, communal buildings and rectories. Alongside the detailed descriptions of individual buildings, copiously illustrated with photographs and plans, is more general discussion of the architecture and the history and economy of the region. There are special sections devoted to subjects including fireplaces, secrets under the floorboards, wall paintings and smoke blackened thatch.
