 Archaeological Investigations Ltd was commissioned to undertake a scheme of recording alongside the programme of restoration to the Solar arch at Goodrich Castle. The work was funded by English Heritage. 





the remains of the weathered capital 


Given the eroded state of the stone, this was very much a detective trail which ended in the tracking down of a good quality photograph from the 19th century in an American Archive. Using this and expert opinions from Richard Morriss a stone moulding specialist we were able to combine the surviving profile of the stone and other information in a computer 3D model that could then be sectioned for the stone masons to carve the replica stone that is now in place at the castle.
