Considers some of the issues that arise when conservation philosophy is put into practice, by examining the repair of protected historic timber‐framed buildings. Examines, primarily, the attitudes of key national heritage organisations, a number of prominent individuals and a significant number of conservation officers. Suggests that, while the practical and theoretical role of the repair guidance is acknowledged by practitioners, the reality is that work carried out to timber‐framed buildings often lacks the clarity and coherence contained within that guidance. Suggests, further, that current guidance, while coherent, is too narrowly based and fails to reflect current concerns regarding appropriate approaches to valuing the built cultural heritage.
