Don't seem to be able to get the hang of multiple image uploads. Here's the group captain hard at work.

Gyrth:

Good we may be, but not that good... the buildings were put up over a three week period by Dave Brown (Streets of Time) and his people. My wife and I went down one weekend and helped with some of the plastering. There were two weeks of educational visits and then the public week (27 May - 4 June), when my group went.

A smaller build will be at the EH Festival of History in August if you fancy a closer look.

Nope, they were all disassembled and off site by the end of last week.

I'm pretty sure the buildings will be at EH's 'Festival of History' at Kelmarsh Hall in a couple of weeks.
