Model of the Blue Boar

The CAD drawings created by Steffan Davies were passed to the University’s Department of Physics and Astronomy and converted into a 1:50 scale model using the Department’s 3D printer. This model shows all the timber framing, the jointing, the moulding of the timbers, the fireplaces and the chamber in which Richard III was said to have stayed.

Ironically, one of Henry Goddard’s most prominent local commissions was the Alderman Newton Boy’s School on the Greyfriars site, in the playground of which Richard Buckley and his team uncovered part of the Greyfriars church. Goddard and John Flowers are both buried in Welford Road Cemetery, next to the University of Leicester.
