This is Rufford Old Hall, just outside Southport. This part of the building dates back to the Tudor period, having been built around 1430. This section is built using wooden pegs to locate and hold the wooden beams, there isn't a metal nail in the whole construction. I have uploaded a number of other pictures of this building to a 'Rufford Old Hall' gallery, which show this construction method a little more clearly.
Comments are always welcome, I appreciate the feedback. Thanks.
