Bruce Bailey is an architectural historian and has served for many years as a member of the Council of the Society. Looking at Northamptonshire buildings, especially the country houses, has been a life-long consuming interest.

In 2009 he agreed to take on the task of revising the Northamptonshire volume in the Pevsner Buildings of England series. This was first published in 1961 and had a partial revision in 1973. The intention is to make the new version more complete and authoritative. Bruce will explain just what has been done so far, what the process involves, and how far the project has progressed.
