Tuesday 20th November 7.30pm Village Hall Committee Room ( £1 )
Bethany Watrous is an MA Buildings Archaeology student at the University, working with Kate on creating a virtual reconstruction of Slingsby Castle, as it was originally envisaged and designed by the architect Robert Smythson for Charles Cavendish (I), based on analysis of the original drawings held by RIBA and other sites such as Caverswall Castle (Staffordshire) and the actual castle, built by John Smithson for Charles Cavendish (II).
Beth will show us the castle in its landscape context, and reappraise its relationship to High Street and the medieval – and current – village layout and its commanding view across what is now the Sports Field and the Lawns.
We will hope to give a brief update, too, about the geophysical survey carried out by Dr Helen Goodchild of the University of York and Slingsby School in October.
