Chirk Castle

The National Trust commissioned us to carry out standing building recording at Chirk Castle. This included a limited desk top study carried out by David Gwyn of Govannon Consultancy followed by the recording of the whole of the castle and its attached service buildings. Within the study an early drawing from 1568 which suggests that the round towers may be much later than originally thought. It was a real privilege to be able to get into bits of the castle not open to the public including the roof space of the south wing which has a raised-cruck roof structure. Also hidden in the roof space of the north wing some spectacular plasterwork.
