YVBSG - Early Fabric of Beverley

Thursday, 20th November 2014

This project is progressing well having started in March 2014.  It is part of the English Heritage National Heritage Protection Plan. This project aims to extend the knowledge of early fabric (construction and construction materials) of the selected buildings in Beverley, starting in the spring of 2014 and concluding by the end of 2016. It will add to the work on early buildings done by the Yorkshire Vernacular Buildings Study Group in 2010. More early buildings will be identified and surveyed, and dendrochronological surveys will be commissioned of all the buildings that have been assessed as likely to yield felling dates for timbers used in their construction. Historical and contextual information is being researched. A Day School will be held on 14th March 2015 in Leeds on the subject of ‘’Early Fabric in Towns’ and a recording conference on 15th to 17th May 2015,  in Beverley.
