The Repair of Historic Buildings

Advice on principles and methods

Aspects of Conservation, 3


February 28th, 1995





A revised work offering comprehensive advice on how damage from inadequate maintenance can be avoided. It remains aware that a programme of repair must take into account a building's unique character, condition and historical development, and covers principles and methods of repair.

This slim tome is an eminently sensible starting point for those embarking on a programme of repairs to a historic building ... A knowledgeable yet straightforward tone is taken throughout, which makes this a handy reference book to be used alongside the more detailed and extensive guidance produced by English Heritage and others.
Alice Kershaw, SPAB (The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings)
