The Charles Archive: Timber Framed Trails

  • 20th April 2019

Priory House, Droitwich

Two timber-framed trails, inspired by the life and work of local architects F.W.B ‘Freddie’ and Mary Charles have been created as part of the Historic England funded Charles Archive Project.

Freddie and Mary’s pioneering architectural practice recorded and conserved many of the counties most iconic timber-framed buildings, including the Great Barn of Bredon and The Commandery.

The Timber-Framed Buildings of Worcester trail and Timber-Framed Buildings of Droitwich trail explore some well-known and less well-known treasures, many of which are open to the public so their original features can be observed and enjoyed.

Both leaflets can be downloaded from our website, and you can also pick up a physical copy of the Worcester leaflet from Worcester Tourist Information centre and from the Explore the Past desk in The Hive.
