The Lord Leycester Hospital, Warwick



More images from my latest away-day, our day out in Warwick. All of these photos are of the Lord Leycester Hospital, one of the best preserved Tudor-style buildings in the UK. For full details go to this link.









Of special note is the colouring of both the wooden frame and the in-fill panels as well as the almost luminescent green lichen growing on the clay tile roofs. I am currently modelling a similar (but much smaller) building and have been intrigued by the level of detail on the exposed timbers, the axe cuts, the wooden dowels or pegs and the amount of remedial work needed on these olde buildings.

The final photo is taken from the back of the building - the carpark area.


I hope you find them of use.

This is one of my favourite Tudor-style buildings. Fantastic source of inspiration. Thank you so much for the close-up pictures.
Makes me want to scratch-build something similar.
