With the mammoth task of revising the County Durham volume of Nikolaus Pevsner's The Buildings of England series completed and publication imminent, Martin shared his thoughts on Pevsner (pictured left), on the revision history of the County Durham volume and his experiences in carrying out this latest upgrade.
A long-standing member of and previous lecturer to our Society, Martin qualified as both an architect and town planner, then worked in the planning department of Durham City Council for almost 25 years before moving to English Heritage as an Historic Building Inspector. He is a leading light in the North East Vernacular Architecture Group. Always concerned for and encouraging the welfare of historic buildings, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, his lecture was, as always, inspirational.
