About this event

Essex has a long history of timber buildings with many surviving examples.  It is vital to preserve these survivors yet, in all but the rarest cases, timber buildings need to adapt to remain useful.  This talk looks at the evolution of timber building in Essex from an engineer's perspective, the challenges involved in maintaining the buildings and, where appropriate, modifying them for new uses.
