Research Project

This research centred upon the office of Lancashire County Architect's Department under the direction of Roger Booth, County Architect 1962-83. It began with fieldwork and photographic surveys and was developed through presenting at the SAHGB symposium 2016. Following the symposium a full journal article for the Journal of the Twentieth Century Society was written and published in 2018. I worked closely with Roger Booth's family and former colleagues.
