Saxon hall takes shape

The Carpenter’s Fellowship have been busy erecting the oak walls of the Saxon longhall. There were several delays with poor ground conditions and the discovery of bits of car and a whole trailer, complete with wheels, in the foundations.

The wall frames are up now, with temporary shoring until the foundations are infilled. It is looking fabulous. The doorways are particularly impressive. When it is finished it will provide a fantastic hands on experience of a Wessex longhall from the time of King Alfred.
