The project will address the following needs and opportunities:

1. To comprehensively record and date a previously unrecorded significant cluster of timber-framed buildings in North Shropshire;
2. To create a team of trained volunteers who will be able to collate, disseminate and transfer knowledge gained from the project on a continuing basis to a wider community (interested parties, individuals, schools, professionals, colleges and academics);
3. To establish a unique and definitive database for timber-framed building styles within this part of England (linking data into BARD);
4. To distribute and upload the results of the project to the various Local Authority repositories and [online] OASIS; and
5. Further and more detailed accounts of the project set-up, running and results will be documented in popular and academic publications.
