Kiplin Hall Study Centre, Scorton, North Yorkshire The English public house provides an excellent subject for studying and exploring the place of this space in community and community building. Thus, students will focus on examining the social, political, and economic aspects of this quintessential English gathering place. We will explore the history of public houses and their products, study the architecture and use of space in these buildings and the ways in which their design and layout play into structuring community relations. In each location where we look at pubs, both in rural and urban settings, we will explore the context of pubs—their placement or location in relationship to other structures, public buildings, churches, etc, and the overall architectural history of the community.
