Woolsington Hall is a Grade II listed country house near the village of Woolsington close to NewCastle. It has been on English Heritage’s Heritage at Risk register since 2002. On the night of the 30th December 2015 the Hall was gutted by fire causing extensive damage.
We were commissioned to record the building immediately after the fire and in early January 2016 we scanned and comprehensively photographed the building. Because of health and safety issues access to the interior of the building was not allowed. Photography of the interior was obtained using a camera crane jib and elevated mast. A camera mounted on a sUAS was used to obtain aerial images both for metric survey and record puposes.
A 3D point cloud was created of the building which will be used by the conservation specialists to inform their plans for the building’s future.
