Medieval Day (2)

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

Here is another photo from last Saturday's Medieval Day that took place alongside the Market Hall in Ashton.

The photo shows a stall selling various craft items. Behind the stall a craftsman is operating a traditional lathe powered by a foot treadle. Some of the chairs and stools he has made can be seen at the far end of the stall.

  1. I don't suppose I ever gave any thought to pre-electric lathes, although the foot pedal makes sense, of course. VERY interesting! Thank you.
