Every year the Society holds a four-day residential conference covering a specific area of the British Isles, open to professional architectural historians, to architects and to interested non-professionals. The dense and varied itinerary consists of visits to a range of buildings, each guided by experts, but input from everyone is encouraged. The conference represents an excellent opportunity to meet others working in the same field, including as it does the Societyís Annual Dinner. Students are especially welcome and some bursaries are available.
This yearís conference will be based in Hereford, looking at the cathedral city and the surrounding county. Following an opening lecture by David Whitehead, the itinerary will include Hampton Court, Eye, Shobdon, Lucton School, Treago, The Mynde, Kinnersley, the cathedral, and many of the regionís churches. Thematic pre-conference tours are also offered, this year covering Arts and Crafts, John Nash and the Vernacular. (Delegates who are not already members will need to join, but may do so at the time of booking).
