Originally published in 1948, An English Farmhouse is Geoffrey Grigson’s careful survey of the stony and wooden details of the old English farmhouse.
In examining the details of the farmhouse and its associated buildings and barns, whether made from sarsen, thatch, brick, timber or tile, Grigson paints a vivid human picture of rural life in the preceding centuries and creates a delicate weave of social history.
