Tudor Timbering

Tudor timbering can be genuine or fake. Here is an example of a 20th century building that has been made to look older than it really is. A genuine Tudor timber frame building has a load-bearing timber frame that supports it, and very often the exposed timbers are treated with a black preservative to make them stand out and look authentic. A replica however supports itself on its brick walls, to which are applied half-timbers – from a distance they look like the real thing, and can give any building a Tudor makeover and a new lease of life.
