Wraysholme Tower Model Farm

The next project was even more difficult and involved reproducing a 15th century three storey pele tower house, together with a model of the whole farm.

‘Wraysholme Tower Farm’ is located at Allithwaite, between Grange-over-Sands and Flookburgh in Cumbria, on the road that leads to ‘Humphrey Head’, (allegedly the site of the killing of the last wolf in England in the 14th century).

Again I visited the farm and took loads of photos of all the buildings from many angles to capture the finer details required to produce a life-like model. This included a climb to the top of the pele tower up a winding stone stairway.
