            Reviews

              This slim tome is an eminently sensible starting point for those embarking on a programme of repairs to a historic building ... A knowledgeable yet straightforward tone is taken throughout, which makes this a handy reference book to be used alongside the more detailed and extensive guidance produced by English Heritage and others.
