About Us

Some 4,000 years after the original structure disappeared from view, more than 60 English Heritage volunteers have rolled up their sleeves to piece together archaeological evidence, gather authentic tools and school themselves in ancient construction methods to recreate the ancient thatched wattle-and-daub dwelling that stood here long before the familiar stones of the 13th-century castle. 

Once Beeston was the place to travel through time from its  glory days as a medieval fortress to its ultimate decline in the Civil War as well as to enjoy its natural woodland setting and spectacular views. Now this new labour of love, due to open to the public in October, will enable us to venture even further back to better appreciate the life and times of our distant ancestors.
