Historic Building Work

For over twenty years now Peter has worked as a self-employed consultant, on projects including buildings from the Anglo-Saxon period to the mid-20th century. A lot of these relate to planning law, when the local authorities require a building to be assessed, recorded, or a watching brief kept during alterations; he has also been involved in a number of regional surveys. On behalf of the Diocese of Durham he has carried out archaeological assessments on around 70 old churches in that county, whilst English Heritage and County Councils have commissioned surveys of medieval and sub-medieval defensible buildings in Northumberland, Cumbria and Durham. More recently he has carried out survey work on nonconformist chapels and meeting houses in the Northern Pennines and elsewhere.

Over the last year or two Peter has worked jointly on many projects, often ones which combine ground archaeology with building recording, with the Archaeological Practice of Newcastle. The Archaeological Practice Ltd specialises in carrying out and reporting on archaeological and historical research for private, corporate and public clients.
