From the cover: “Vernacular architecture, the scientific study of regional building characteristics, has only recently been recognised as a distinct branch of architectural history. Its beginnings in Britain were linked to the foundation of the Vernacular Architecture Group in 1952 which drew together specialists and enthusiasts from a number of disciplines. As more buildings of regional character are allowed to decay or are demolished to make way for new developments, the need to record and preserve the architectural heritage in the light of established standards becomes a joint task for planners and conservationists.”
