INTRODUCTION

I was not trained as an historian, indeed during my school and university career found it a dull subject. It was not until I became involved in the newly formed Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings (as it is now called) from the mid-1960s that I became interested in vernacular architecture and local history, and am grateful both to the late Freddie Charles, the well known expert on Midlands timber framed buildings and a member of the Avoncroft Museum committee, and my brother Richard, who has had a career of working with vernacular buildings, for inspiration.
