STONE ROOFING:

Conserving the materials and practice of traditional stone slate roofing in England


Edited by Chris Wood


(Ex library copy in very good condition)

  

The British Isles have a remarkable variety of types of natural stone roofs. These range from schists and slates to sandstones and limestones. There is also a wide range of slating styles. These materials and techniques make a huge contribution to the historic landscape.

  

This volume of English Heritage Research Transactions is devoted to the traditional stone slates found on some of England's most attractive and historically important buildings. It is an extensive overview of the stone slate industry in England, organised geographically and geologically, describing the types of stone roofing material used traditionally in previous times and today, identifying their sources and current availability. 

  

Published by English Heritage. Softback with dust jacket. 2003. Colour photographs and maps. 156 pages. Very good condition. Ex library copy with virtually no library stamps or marks.
