An international organisation for all those interested in lesser traditional buildings


The Group's conferences are where members meet to study buildings and discuss their findings. Conferences are open to members and guests only.

Spring Conferences

Somerset conference 2006

In the spring members and guests meet in a different part of the country each year to visit a selection of buildings in the local vernacular tradition. Local experts are on hand to explain the background and more experienced members help others to interpret them. In the evenings, lectures and discussions allow the day's findings to be explored further. The spring conference is normally open to members and guests only; please see the Membership page for details of how to join the group.
