Traditional farm buildings of Britain

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In this long-awaited book, Dr Brunskill introduces the reader to the development of farming practices and how this affected farmsteads; and then takes a typical farm of the eighteenth century and describes how it functioned and the parts played by the various buildings. A detailed examination of both the great threshing barns and their smaller brethren is followed by the transformation of the barn through the use of horses and later, steam-engines and wind and water power. The curing of crops and the various types of kiln to be found on farmsteads form a fascinating story, as does the animal hierarchy of the farmyard which had a direct effect on the buildings in which animals were housed.

Dr Brunskill also explains how traditional farm buildings can be re-used and thus saved for the use and enjoyment of future generations.
