Historic Farm Buildings Group

Reference: SR HFBG, SR 2HFBGDate: 1984-2005Extent: unknown

The Historic Farm Buildings Group was founded in 1985 and is concerned with the past, present and future of historic farm buildings. It recognises their importance as evidence for past farming systems and technologies, the development of agricultural and constructional practices, and more generally for the life and work of our ancestors, peasant and monk, landowner and farmer, craftsmen and surveyor, engineer and architect.

The collection is split across two deposits.
