Medieval Double Belled Wedge Tents

Medieval Wedge Striped Tent

The double belled wedge tent is found in a number of medieval paintings and sketches. Henry the VIII’s camp drawing shows many of these tents in use and under erection. With a door in the center of the body of the tent, it offers usable floor space while taking up no extra area for guy lines. The tents are strong and able to withstand any weather thrown at them due to their triangular cross section. Add to this the fact that the double belled wedge needs only two vertical poles and one ridge pole and you have an easy tent to transport also.

TENTSMITHS constructs the double bells in a number of sizes. We have not been able to find any documented original dimensions but the paintings appear to show the same design in a number of different sizes.

Medieval Double Bell Tent

We offer your choice of two door styles. The Henry VIII style is a thirty inch wide door, six feet tall with a half round peak. (As shown above on tent in foreground) The “French” door is our usual five inch overlap, ties inside and out, which can be tied open (Shown above).

We have also built some beautiful and functional awnings for these tents. Optional tent floor is an acrylic, flame resistant vapor barrier.
