About Documenting Wray Castle's detailsA rare opportunity to help create a record of the details of this highly intricate Gothic Revival building.
Throughout its rich 170-year history, Wray Castle has been home to a diverse mix of tenants. This is a rare opportunity to take part documenting the unknown condition of a historic property and compile a conservation audit by photographing and detailing all significant features within the castle. No previous photography skills are necessary as a professional photographer will teach techniques that will help you capture the rich tones of the wooden flooring and the beautiful intricate detailing on the Minton tiles.
About the accommodation
Located in its own peaceful wooded grounds above Lake Windermere with great fell views. The bunkhouse consists of two single-storey cabin-style constructions: the Longland and the Acland. The Longland is made up of three buildings with a large common room with log burner and separate blocks for the dormitories and shower block. The Acland is a self-contained single building. There are large private grounds with a fire pit and barbecue areas.
