Fortified Manor House - Part 3

So, with the main halls done it’s onto the other buildings and curtain walls. A timber gatehouse was requested along the line of Stokesay castle but simplified. There’s also a shed/stables embedded in the curtain wall.

Normal groundwork, a few barrels etc in the courtyard and it's good to go :-)

  3. Beautiful! And also much more versatile on a table than a castle or tower, so that is great.

    Would it have crenelated walls without a wall walk though? Seems like a lot of work for just the "look" of fortification.

    1. Thank you :-)

      Yes, quite often a timber construction would go up behind the wall in time of need. it also works as a visual deterrent.

      cheers
