UNLIMITED ACCESS TO OVER 400 HISTORIC PLACES
Live and breathe the story of England at royal castles, historic gardens, forts & defences, world-famous prehistoric sites and many others.
Aydon Castle was a home and workplace for over 700 years but, beyond a few names, there is little record of the individuals who lived there. Reimagining Aydon is a collaboration between English Heritage and skilled lecturers from the Northumbria University School of Design who have come together to create objects inspired by the castle, its history and the setting to bring a human element back to the building.
The pieces have been made from wood, metal, fabric and glass, all produced by the designers who are skilled craftspeople, offering a contemporary interpretation of the historic materials associated with Aydon. Head to the top floor of the castle to see these unique household objects.
Reimaging Aydon runs from the 9th June to the end of October.
