Farm buildings form an important element in the landscape. In their design they reflect the differences in types and methods of farming between one area and another and between different periods of history. A greay many have been converted to houses or some other use, others have been modified, or demolished or left to decay. The need to study and record what is left is therefore very urgent. This book looks at the purely agricultural buildings in turn, so that each can be recognised, as a barn, a cowhouse, a stable and so on. The buildings are looked at as you would approach them, noting first the features visible from outside, then those seen inside, and only finally the plan. The book also looks, more briefly, at the way buildings are grouped together.

The farmstead; The barn; The cartshed; Other buildings for crops; The stable; Buildings for cattle; Buildings for other livestock; Recording farm buildings; Places to visit.
