Medieval Great Hall

The re-production medieval trestle table was custom built for the great hall.  To make the table level the curve of the floor had to be taken into account so the legs of one bench are nearly a foot shorter on one end then the other. It is the only uneven floor to remain at the manor and it was important that it was kept as it is.  Floors are not uneven because of their age it is because green oak was used and as it drier out it warped, so even in the middle ages people would have had the same unique wonky twists in the beams we see today.
