James as part of his PhD research at the University of Southampton has been conducting a series of laser scan models of the buildings within Winchester Cathedral Close. One of these buildings is Pilgrims Hall which is an important medieval structure with the earliest example of Hammer beam timber framing in the UK. Both the exterior and interior parts of the building have been recorded from which James will create a reconstruction of its original form. The images shown provide examples of the level detail that can be gained from laser scanning.
