aster mason who worked on projects at Windsor Castle, Wells Cathedral, Winchester College and New College Oxford. Wynford worked at Windsor Castle from 1360 and work here included the Great Gate and the royal lodgings in the upper ward. While Wynford was at Windsor, the clerk of the works was William of Wykeham. Wykeham was to become the Bishop of Winchester Cathedral and when work was needed to convert the Norman Cathedral to the Perpendicular style, Wynford was employed to perform the task. Work began on 29th of September, 1394. Wynford worked mainly in the south-west of the country.
The work on Wardour Castle (now Old Wardour Castle) was begun in this year. The architect in charge may have been William Wynford who was responsible for the changes made to Winchester Cathedral around about the same time. The castle is very unusual in that is hexagonal and aligned to the north-east.
