This weekend saw the launch of S4c’s latest living history series, ‘Y Llys’, in which 17 people give up modern life for a few weeks to immerse themselves into a Tudor way of living. Icon & Co supplied props, scenic artwork & their considerable 21st century carpentry skills to help transform the 14th Century fortified manor house at Tretower Court, Powys, for the purpose.
Modern gift-shop buildings had to be concealed & sympathetically blended into their more time-worn surroundings, & large interior spaces were divided up into smaller living spaces, with fake walls that needed to look as worn & ancient as their medieval setting required. Beehives, water-butts as well as entire out-house buildings were constructed & themed for the show, including a functional latrine building, set as a free-standing addition to the gardens. Check out our portfolio pages for more on-set pictures.
