ALLAN & DOROTHY'S VISIT TO GUÉDELON

First Page

26th September 2015

Guédelon, France

Deep in the forests of northern Burgundy, in a once disused quarry a team of master-builders are building a C13th castle from scratch. Quarrymen, stonemasons, woodcutters, carpenter-joiners, blacksmiths, tile makers, carters and rope makers are working together to revive heritage craft skills and shed light on the world of medieval construction.
