Post Brick & Flint laying course

The Oxfordshire Woodland Group have decided that the foundation for their woodland community cruck barn will employ a brick and flint foundation with brick piers located under each of the feet of the cruck blades and flint dwarf walls connecting between the brick pillars underbuilt beneath the timber sills as demonstrated at the rebuilding of Sole Street at The Weald and Downland Living Museum.


This work will be undertaken on a workshop basis engaging a speciailist flint knapping and laying instructor to teach aspiring vernacular timber-frame and flint building workers.

Persons wishing to try their hand at this ancient craft are welcome to get in touch with the Trustees who will advise further on timing (summer 2017)
