Horncastle, Wheelwright's Furnace
The wheelwright's furnace or oven at 45 Foundry Street is a rare survival.
Metal tyres, standing vertically, were heated on the hearth of the oven before fitting over cart or wagon wheels in the wheelwright's yard alongside.
Matthew Scaman (father and then son) were the first wheelwrights here; Charles Twell followed in the 1920s.
