Virtual Holt Castle

Historian, academic and castle enthusiast, Rick Turner, and Chris Jones-Jenkins, an artist who specialises in historical reconstruction illustrations, joined forces to produce a detailed room by room, floor by floor, illustration of Holt Castle, c. 1495.

The project combines 21st century computer aided drawing with traditional historical research skills. The result is the closest we will probably ever get to seeing Holt Castle, both inside and out.

The project was sponsored by the Castle Studies Trust.
