An illustrated history of house development in rural Kent over the millenia, partly conjectural but fascinating nonetheless. This was Kenward’s first ( and last?) foray into architectural history, having before been a writer of novels, and although some of his theories are improbable, his knowledge of local houses and construction methods (particularly of roofs and walls) is impressive, and Kenward provided his own lively drawings for the plates.
