Siege engine workshops
Our trebuchet wasn’t the only siege engine on the battlefields of long ago – the ballista was an ancient weapon used by the Romans.
Book now to learn how to make a modern version of a ballista, and see how far you can get it to throw a tennis ball.
This hands-on workshop is a fun way of teaching children aged six-12 design and construction techniques.
This is a group activity and the final design is up to those taking part.
There are two sessions a day, each of an hour and a half, costing £3 per child. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Normal admission prices apply – admission free to National Trust members.
