Fabulous Fretwork

After more than 25 years, it takes something to surprise us. Well, here it is.

This fretwork was buried between two walls of a house recently converted to a 9 plex for student housing. Thank goodness society still condones slum-like warrens for our future brightest or this would never have been found.


Made of carved oak, this piece measures almost 13 feet across and just under 7 feet to the bottom of the posts where there once would have been square plinths to the floor (missing). Certainly one of the more dramatic fretworks we've seen.

What an amazing bar this would make!
