I had this as a student of architectural history. I never remember things very well, so bought this copy to refer. Great reference book, will be invaluable for me when considering those natural resources! You won't get a better resource book on Britain's historical building materials.

One of the most detailed publications setting out all the materials used within English building. It explains the geology of the country and the materials found in different areas so why houses and other buildngs traditionally looked very different in Cornwall say than Kent,because they used the materials which were locally available. Fascinating and well written and illustrated giving examples of verancular architecture throughout the country. Its essential reading for anyone interested in the built heritage- a book I have refered to regularly over 20 years and a great shame that it is out of print.
