About the course

Vernacular buildings are the attractive houses and barns, built of local stone, which contribute to the unique character of the Ingleborough Dales landscape, with its remote upland farms, small nucleated villages and isolated field barns. Built within the last 400 years by local farmers, such structures are a rich historical resource, though much under-used by historians. Documentary records are sparse and buildings are perhaps not greatly understood by non-specialists. This course aims to improve recording skills in drawing-up building plans, elevations and details that form valuable records of our vernacular buildings.

 

This guided walk will showcase the buildings of Langcliffe and explain how building features provide evidence of how people used to live and work. Participants will learn how observation and analysis can yield a wealth of information.

 

This course is part of Stories in Stone, a four-year programme of community and heritage projects that has been developed by the Ingleborough Dales Landscape Partnership with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. YDMT is the lead partner.
