MOLA archaeologists have been carrying out a detailed recording of Canons Ashby House. This sixteenth century country house in rural Northamptonshire began as a modest farm house and was gradually enlarged and altered by successive members of the Dryden family resulting in the jumbled architecture seen today. As well as traditional drawn and photographic survey techniques the archaeologists have carried out a complete laser survey of the house and photogrammetric models have been produced of several features.
This model was generated from photos captured via a drone survey of the entire exterior of the building. This survey also allowed high resolution orthomosaic photos of each elevation to be produced.
