Medieval Buildings - Peter Gray 2002
This is a comprehensive inventory of buildings with medieval characteristics in the county, excluding agricultural buildings and churches. Of the 850 buildings listed in the inventory over 700 have been reported on by the DBRG, the author or another authority. The report summaries contained in the inventory make the book an invaluable reference work to anyone studying the history of a Surrey parish. So that one parish may be placed in the wider Surrey context twenty pages of tables, maps and text set out the range of sizes of buildings discovered. This includes comments on exceptional buildings, decoration and structure, the variety of building types (including fully-floored buildings with medieval plans, detached service blocks/kitchens, one, two and three bay halls), and further research questions for the county as a whole.
