Photo of Orford Castle stonework

Orford castle stone, originally uploaded by theoclarke.

I took this detail of the construction of Orford Castle back in April when I was there with primary school children on a mapping workshop as part of my river project. This pattern appealed to me: the textures and the subtle colours in the raking light. I think that this is squared cementstone dredged from the River Ore or the North Sea in the twelfth century and bonded with lime mortar.
