National Farmsteads Character Statement
By Jeremy Lake
The documents use a consistent terminology for describing farmsteads and their building types (set out in further detail in the National Farm Building Types document), which will allow users to identify and apply standardised indexing to farmstead types and their functional parts. This new thesaurus will be of use to Historic Environment Records and it is hoped to anyone involved in the recording of farmsteads.
