Since the 1950's there have been radical changes in the techniques that are used to maintain, repair, and conserve historic buildings. The invention of new materials has led to a sharp reduction in the numbers of craftsmen who are accustomed to practise traditional methods of construction and repair. At the same time, while major repairs of the Victorian era are nearing the end of their life, the architectural training of the 'modern movement' has provided no sound foundation upon which to base a philosophy for the care of ancient buildings.
These problems have been thrown into stark relief with the provision by central government of Historic Building Grants for the repair of listed churches in use for worship. For more than a century it has been realized by some that works necessary to maintain churches in good order may be fatal to the evidence they contain unless they are carried on in a manner which blends the best practices of several disciplines, including materials science, art and architectural history, and archaeology.
