Model of lost Tudor palace built

A model of Henry VIII’s lost Nonsuch Palace has been created, based upon over 50 years worth of research.

Prof Biddle said: “From the start it was Henry’s evident intention to celebrate the birth of long awaited male heir by building a house without equal.”

“With the plan established, it is possible to attempt to accurately evaluate what the house looked like in its heyday.

“It had a decorative scheme which was more than 900 feet long, with a minimum average height of 24 feet, covering a surface of 21,600 square feet.”
