In the old days carpenters used splayed and mortise axes, belt and frame saws, various grades of planes as well as crowbars and bevelled-edge chisels. See the tools that built our ridge-post house over 300 years ago; discover how they were used and then run your hands over the traces they left behind.
Explore the three displays:
- the tools in the gallery
- the traces they left on the south façade
- the roof construction in the hayloft
