About Tudor Crenellation
Tudor architecture has many distinctive elements that define this wonderful design pattern. The use of crenellation is especially wonderful
as it carries forward its basic fortress roots. Tudor architecture evolved during the fortification period of the middle ages and crenellation was
an essential element of fortified walls. Fortified elements were required in England well into the 15th century and included such implements as motes, gate houses, and other protective devices. As the need for fortified protection wained,
these elements were retained in some cases for privacy reasons and charm/elegance. At one point in time in England, the use of crenellation was considered a "royal"
architectural element, and was therefore forbidden without the state's approval. With modern day Tudor structures, the use of crenellation is simply a wonderful
reminder of the ancient origin of this our beloved Tudor architecture.
