SANHS Building Recording Group
The tradition of recording old buildings was revived in 2013 with the setting up of SANHS Building Research Group. Work was started in Porlock with the encouragement of Exmoor National Park Authority and also at Milverton, where a new local history group had just been founded. To date 10 properties have been recorded in Porlock and 9 in Milverton, which have been summarised in SANHS Proceedings. In late 2017, Historic England were encouraging voluntary groups to apply for their initiative “Early Fabric in Historic Towns”. The group was successful in their bid which resulted in the “Early Dunster Project”. Volunteers with a very wide range of good skills are involved in this work which is ongoing. The work will include a detailed study of Dunster’s buildings which it is intended will lead to a publication on the subject.
The SANHS Building Recording group obtained funding from Historic England to record buildings in Dunster. Find out more here.
