Wheelwrighting supplies

Gye’s Yard on White Street in Market Lavington was where Wheelwrighting was carried out for many years. You can see The Wheelwright at work – fitting a tyre. by clicking this link. Tom Gye, husband of our museum founder, Peggy, was a member of this family of builders, who had formerly employed a blacksmith and wheelwright too. You can read Tom’s Wheelwright memories here.

Tom donated a leaflet to the museum, advertising supplies for wheelwrights, which had been kept since the early 20th century.

The prices, in shillings and pence, are to be found inside.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
