Children in Weobley create a one-third Tudor house as part of heritage weekend
CHILDREN in Weobley got creative to build their own one-third scale Tudor house as part of heritage weekend.
The youngsters used the skills of craftsmen of the period and worked in teams to make wattle panels, shape pegs to pin the house together and to tile and thatch a section of roof.
The session was the brainchild of Charlie Lupton – of Build Your Own History – who supervised the children as they put together the house.
The house was built in front of one of the oldest remaining cruck cottages in England, at the back of the Red Lion beside Weobley’s old bowling green.
Julie Peacock, organiser and member of the Weobley tourism forum, said: “I thought it was absolutely amazing. It was fascinating to see the excitement of the older people too – the parents and the grandparents.
"They would’ve liked to have been able to get involved, they couldn’t resist. Everyone had a lot of fun – and learned quite a lot as well.”
