This day is aimed at people interested in learning how to record buildings who would then like to put their new skills to use by assisting in the Project’s building recording survey which is to be undertaken at Bordley Town over the next few months.

Sonia has very kindly offered to run this day on behalf of Bordley Township Project at Kilnsey Old Hall where she lives. You will need to bring with you a clipboard, a scale rule with 1:10 cm side, a compass, a camera, a notepad, a good quality pencil, eraser and a drawing board.

Please advise beforehand if you do not have any of these items.

You will also need to bring a packed lunch. Sonia will provide refreshments and handouts during the day as well as the use of her garage if it is wet and for drawing up. Wear / bring warm clothes and waterproofs and supportive footwear. Fingerless gloves are useful.

The plan will be survey, measure up and a draw a floor plan, and possibly an elevation (if time allows) of the gatehouse at Kilnsey Old Hall.

Writing the report is the part which takes time and experience but Sonia will give pointers on how to overcome some of the problems.

This day is aimed at people interested in learning how to record buildings who would then like to put their new skills to use by assisting in the Project’s building recording survey which is to be undertaken at Bordley Town over the next few months.

There will be a charge of £5 (payable on the day) to cover the cost of refreshments and handouts. If you would like to take part, please let Ann Wilkinson (e-mail: ann.wilkinson0@talk21.com) know as soon as possible as numbers are limited to ten.
