Old Baille 2019 mockup

A quick video flythrough of the reconstruction of Old Baille – unlike Clifford’s Tower over the river, this castle was never rebuilt in stone , so always had wooden walls, towers and keep. It was built as a backup to the main castle following the revolt by the citizens of York in 1068. It was a classic Motte & Bailey contstruction, and houses on Falkland Street still suffer from subsidence caused by the moated ditch we’ve rebuilt here. We’re particularly pleased with how the water looks!
