Description

 

Description of timber roof features (King post, Crown post, Queen post, etc) is far from straightforward.  Writers seem not to agree on the precise definitions of each term, some are by eye very similar, some are fully covered or partially obscured by ceilings, and many are in properties for which there is no public access anyway.

 

For now, we aim simply to draw attention to those local buildings that offer some public access and possess roof features that are visible and of architectural interest.  We also offer navigation links to related pages elsewhere in the website.

 

The selected properties are Eastbridge Hospital, St Mildred’s church, St Peter’s church, the Parrot pub/restaurant, and Multiyork furniture shop.
