Replica Medieval, Tudor and Stuart Buildings

Complete permanent open-air replica sites have been constructed at Gosport and Grayhill, and temporary hamlets at events such as the Bath and Wells Showground.

Some sites include not only buildings but also complete environmental reconstructions from gardens and orchards to weed patterns.
