The Bredon Barn was built about 1340 and destroyed by fire on April 18th 1980. This is the story of its rebuilding. It begins with an account of the five other great medieval barns still standing in the Coswold-Severn region, providing a setting for a detailed look at Bredon as it was. Christopher Dyer contributes a chapter on the background history, and its social/economic significance, whilst the bleak central section turns its attention to the fire and aftermath. Supported by a comprehensive photographic record by Martin Charles, and architectural drawings, there is full discussion of the emergency repairs and meticulous reconstruction work, which in itself is a valuable contribution to an understanding of medieval building techniques.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book contains numerous excellent photographs and is to be recommended for its careful documentation of the carpentry restoration, the precise details concerning materials and jointing techniques, and particularly for Dyers insights into the socioeconomic context of the Bredon barn within the episcopal demesne.--Lynn T Courtnay "Speculum "
The outstanding photographs demonstrate the magnitude of the task. In all the book is an impressive description of a remarkable acheivement.--N W Alcock "Medieval Archaeology, Vol XLIII, 1999 "
