The Survey Process

Each volunteer was given a copy of the Volunteer Survey Manual, to help them carryout their surveys. The survey process was split into two parts. Firstly, using a worksheet created for the project, to record observations on the physical condition of the buildings, looking in particular at roofs, high-level stonework and gutters and downpipes. These observations were collated to produce an overall assessment of condition in one of four categories: good, fair, poor, very poor. Secondly, again using a worksheet created for the project, volunteers had to assess the historical and architectural significance of each building, based on background research and on-site observations
