“Thank you Chris for your comments and research on this topic it is much appreciated. The original article came as such amazing news because I had often lamented the loss of this historic part of Bristol and often thought it would be nice if somebody could replicate it on the computer so that we could take a virtual tour of it but the idea of actually reconstructing the Dutch House would be even better especially if it was carried out in the authentic traditional manner. Hannover was the first city to be twinned with Bristol after the war and in the Town Hall you can see scale models of how it looked in ancient times, in 1938, and after the destruction from Allied bombing also the rebuild. It was quite noticeable last summer, in these times of austerity how much effort is going into restoring Historic buildings, Churches and other structures. The construction of modern building has been ongoing for years but it was the restoration work that particularly caught my eye.”

“Robert_H, I did actually embark on doing a 3D recreation of the area from an old map I found online, using a level editor from a well known 3D computer game, as I had done for my home town's castle and my team's old football ground. But it proved to be far too ambitious!Much better to restore the real thing though!”

“It is interesting how you have a keen interest in Bristol even though you don't hail from here. Who knows perhaps you have distant ancestors from Bristol that you are not aware of. Perhaps you are a citizen of the World where you take an interest wherever you are. This is different from a Globalist who will betray the Nation for profit.While in other countries I have felt sad about historic buildings being destroyed in the name of progress or even those that were destroyed during the war, even in Germany and other places. However the deliberate targeting of our historic centres was a mark of the evil ideology of Nazism that had to be dealt with. In France there are really ancient villages or towns where people are encouraged to keep them the same as they have always been. It is so fascinated and it is not just what you see but also what can be felt.”
