Next Committee Meeting 17th May 2016


The Group was formed in 1983 by a varied collection of professionals and amateurs keen to see more work on the lesser buildings of Essex published for all to see and comment on. They were a mix of people having many varied interests in the field of study loosely covered by the term 'historic buildings'. Buildings, materials, documents, landscape or just an inquisitive mind were the areas of interest, we have now published a continuing series of booklets, a manual on recording a building, hold a Day School once a year and provide Sunday guiding at the Cressing Temple site. We meet regularly to hear speakers on various aspects of historic buildings and building types
