Volunteers at Codnor Castle have unearthed an important artefact which will help them learn more about the 11th
century medieval castle.
Tom Saint, 19, son of one of the castle’s trustees came across the 13th century English gothic ‘quatrefoil’ during a routine maintenance clean up of the castle’s grounds.
A quatrefoil is a traditional Christian decorative symbol primarily found on prominent architectural structures of religious buildings. This particular find is believed to be from the castle’s chapel.
