House histories and Project results, produced by the Project volunteers. Distribution maps. A Guide to Research. A Glossary of technical terms and a Glossary of old document terms and meanings. Plus two unique Timelines which put the houses into a historic timeframe.


The Charity's objects ('the Objects') are

(1) To advance the education of the public in general (and particularly amongst professional

and amateur historians and archaeologists and local communities) on the subject of

Dating timber in pre-1700 buildings in north west Wales (selected from Anglesey,

Gwynedd, Conwy and south Denbighshire) principally where possible using

dendrochronology (tree ring dating);

(2) And to promote research into the history of such buildings by volunteers and specialists

for the public benefit in all aspects of that subject;

(3) And to publish the useful results.
