Greatly to my surprise and joy, Vaughan came to the Castle today and began work re-erecting the old [timber-framed] house [from Culver Street]. There are four men on it, and they laid out one side on the floor today. Nice to see such work going on.
For more information on the 15th century house that Eric rescued from demolition, see his earlier diary entries here.
