LAG talk with Peter Varlow
A Sussex hall house of 1473 - a well-illustrated talk about the architecture, archaeology and documentary history of a typical late-medieval timber-framed hall house in the Weald of Sussex. Peter draws on evidence from building recording, documentary research, archaeology and dendrochronology that he and Sally Varlow carried out when researching their timber-framed Chailey farmhouse, and gives a colourful glimpse of the life and times of its people – the builders, owners and tenants – over nearly 550 years. He is a member of the Vernacular Architecture Group and the Wealden Buildings Study Group, and author of ‘From Trees to Timbers: a comparative study of timber quantities in houses’, Vernacular Architecture journal, 2015. He and Sally captured all their findings in their book, In An Old House, Pomegranate Press, 2017.
