Abstract:
Tree-ring analysis of 14 samples obtained from the roofs of The Abbot's Lodge, Ledbury, has produced a single site chronology, LDBBSQ01, this comprising 12 samples, and having an overall length of 246 rings. These rings were dated as spanning the years 1274 to 1519. Interpretation of the sapwood on the dated samples indicates that two phases of timber felling are represented. The earlier phase is represented by six samples, all from trusses 1 - 8 (these trusses appearing to represent one single and distinct structural element of the building), the timbers for which all appear to have been felled in 1480. The later phase is represented by six samples from trusses 9 - 12 (which appear to represent a second distinct structural element). These timbers all appear to have been felled in 1519. It is apparent, therefore, that the building began life in 1480 as a three-bay, east-west, range with a three-bay north-south wing attached at its east end. In 1519 a three-bay addition was built attached to the south end of the east wing.
