Dating Old Buildings

I must admit that I am fascinated by architectural history, especially when the clues have to be found within the building's structure. There are many clues including change of material, orientation, style and colour. Above is a photo I took of a church in yorkshire showing two phases revealed by the change in style. On the left we have the later perpendicular style of gothic architecture and on the right we have the earlier decorated (geometric) style.

There is a great introduction to dating old buildings by Frank Kelsall on the Building Conservation Website
