The aim is not only to build an "authentic" castle, but also to keep these heritage crafts alive. When complete, the complex will include a residential tower, residential building with a chapel, castle courtyard, farm buildings, and a castle garden. The site can only be visited as part of a guided tour.You will you see stone workers, ironmongers, and carpenters at work and discover the how and why of medieval construction practices.
