Shed commissioned to build a trebuchet for Wiston Lodge, Biggar

The Shed has been commissioned to build a trebuchet - a medieval catapult - for The Wiston Lodge near Biggar. We plan to build a counterweight trebuchet that stands about 3.2 metres tall and can theoretically throw a cricket ball about 200 yards. The machine will be called 'The Wiston Warwolf' after the Warwolf trebuchet built in Scotland by King Edward I for the siege of Stirling Castle in 1304.
We are well on the way to starting this project very soon, we have completed the drawings and have obtained many of the required components. Work will begin in December 2017 in earnest and should be completed by the end of January 2018.
