Historic Buildings

Preserving the essence of the British Isles

History has shaped the fabric of the places in which we live and work. Traditional buildings, sites and monuments are part of our heritage and, once lost, cannot be replaced.

England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have thousands of historic buildings, monuments, structures and sites.

There can be no doubt that historic buildings tend to be well designed, robust and visually appealing. This is often due to the use of high quality construction materials, specifically those that were available locally. From this rule of thumb emerged regional variations in design, as craftsmen in different areas developed their own preferences for certain styles of building.

Bonwick HC has been involved at the start of projects encompassing a wide range of building types. These include traditional farm structures, historic houses, church architecture, urban buildings and industrial archaeology. On behalf of Oxley Conservation Ltd we have produced desktop assessments, measured drawings and recording surveys of historic fabric in advance of conservation work.

We must hand down our historic buildings "instructive and venerable to those that come after us" - William Morris, founder of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB)
