Drawbridges and Footbridges

Restoration of medieval castles

Situated in the Loire Valley, ATELIERS PERRAULT is surrounded by a wealth of historical buildings including medieval castles. The upkeep of this heritage provides a variety of projects to test our ingenuity and deepen our understanding. A good example of this type of project is the realization of replica drawbridges. A typical drawbridge combines hand forged pivots, straps and nails complementing brushed and limed oak joists and boards, providing a great opportunity for our carpenters and blacksmiths to work together.
