Surrey Dendrochronology Project

We joined forces with Surrey Archaeological Society and, with the support of Surrey County Council and a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, set up the Surrey Dendrochronology Project. The objective was to map the development of timber-framed buildings, century by century, area by area, across the county, using tree-ring dating.

The Project has confirmed the sequence and development of many architectural features, often attributing earlier dates than had been previously understood.

The report of the findings has now been published in a 200 page, fully illustrated book, providing a clear, accurate picture of how the vernacular architecture of Surrey has evolved.

Copies can be purchased here at a cost of £20 + £3.95 p&p.
