Special Exhibitions for 2022
“NEW” Model of Wallingford Castle
Wallingford Museum’s dedicated team of researchers collaborated with architectural model maker, Ben Taggart, to create a 1:300 scale model (1.5mx1.6m) of Wallingford’s royal castle as it may have been in the mid-14th Century.
Drawing on 15 years of research, the castle’s history (has been unravelled), using archaeology, geophysical surveys, LiDAR, maps, and the transcription, translation and analysis of many documentary records. The culmination of all this research is this magnificent model of the castle at the height of its power, in the 1330’s, set in the north-eastern quarter of the town.
Accompanying displays present the story of the research documentary and archaeological – that informed the layout of the model and how it was beautifully created for the museum by Ben Taggart.
