Through site survey, the use of drones, and a technique called photogrammetry, we have captured the Wesgate excavations in 3D

This 3D model, captured by drone, shows the brief moment in time in October 2015 when we had exposed the largest expanse of the friary buildings possible.

This small section of tiled pavement was the floor in the south-west corner of the main cloister walk. Initial results suggest it formed the primary floor which was laid in the years immediately after AD 1244, and was therefore in use for 300 years up to the Dissolution when Henry VIII closed the friary in AD 1538.
