Friends Projects - Cannon Carriages

As a Friend of Berkeley Castle you help support the repair of the building and its unique contents and help to safeguard them for the enjoyment of future generations.

Members of the Friends of Berkeley Castle assist Berkeley Castle Charitable Trust, which is dedicated to the "preservation, conservation and restoration, for the public benefit, of Berkeley Castle, its contents and its gardens".

One of this year's Friends' projects was to have cannon carriages made.  Two have been made already, using oak from the Castle Estate, and can be seen at the Castle.  We were so pleased with the results that a further two carriages have been ordered.

Before and after......
