The Historic Environment Significance of Village Halls and Public Buildings
Client - English Heritage (NDPB)
Desk-based research project to investigate the heritage significance and value of rural public buildings in England, particularly focusing on village halls, the inception of which largely resulted from the huge social impact of the First World War. The project involved primary and secondary research into listed and unlisted structures to gauge the development of village halls and rural public buildings, the overall survival of the building type, changes in building design, structure and use over time, significance and threats to this significance, and case studies demonstrating good practice, including showing that listing need not preclude new uses and services.
