Shakespeare Birthplace - Shakespeare Centre, Stratford-upon-Avon: 33 reviews and 83 photos
Shakepeare's Birthplace is reminiscent of 17th century architecture.
The rooms are small, ceilings are low, oak beams abound as does stone flooring. The walls are only half timbered, with much of the wall being built using wattle and daub (as seen in the first photo).
Wattle and daub is a mixture of cow manure and horsehair, interwoven amongst wooden sticks.
In Shakespeare's time these half timbered walls were plastered over, and we can now see them in their original state as the plaster was removed during the Victorian times.
The windows are the typical 17th century glass panes, small panes of glass within wooden frames.
