I will be traveling to the UK and Scotland July 24th thru August 10th and want to visit areas and sites of interest regarding anything woodworking. Plan to see William Morris Society Museum, lots of cathedrals and village churches, castles, etc.

Can anyone on Lumerjocks recommend must see places especially for Arts and Crafts style furniture manufacturers and museums, small woodworking shops, etc? Any direct contacts would be appreciated.

Thanks, Roger in Texas

If you are in London you could do worse than visit Shakespears Globe theatre. Rebuilt from the ground up on the orignal site by Sam Wannamaker during the latter part of the last century, it is an Oak framed building made using traditional method’s.

You could check Paul Seller’s site and see what is going on at Penrhyn Castle while you are there. There might be a short course or something. Apparently the castle itself is a landmark anyway, not to mention the bonus of seeing some woodworking too.
