CART researcher Ian Edwards has spent the last six months working on the Coleshill House Reborn project.

His ultimate goal is to deliver a photo realistic video walk through of Coleshill House which sadly burnt down in 1952.

Ian has already designed full CAD drawings of the house and outbuildings and is now working on images and video of the inside of the house.

You can see some of his work here

Keep your eyes on our site and this news page for my info.
