A corroded and encrusted iron keyhole type horseshoe of post medieval date of circa AD 1650-1800. The heels are inclined with thickened and down turned calkins.

A large, worn and corroded iron keyhole type horseshoe of post-Medieval date, Circa 1700, Prince Rupert smithy type. The shoe is U' shaped in plan and of flat section, with a rounded inner arch and elongated and tapered heels. There is evidence of a fullered groove with the corroded remains of four probable T-shaped nails. It appears to have five nails to each branch, although this is uncertain due to corrosion deposits. The toe section is heavily worn, with some upstanding of the metal. Although this is probably a draught shoe, Ivan G. Sparkes notes that this type may have been used…

A large forged iron horseshoe of probable seventeenth century date. The shoe has a deep fullered groove with turned down calkins and is deeply concave to the hoof side and convex to the ground. Both branches are equal with probably four nails to each branch. Five corroded nails are in situ but it is unclear if they are T-shaped, but with a fullered groove it is probable. Usually there are nails to the toe section as examples illustrated in Ivan G, Sparkes, Old Horseshoes. page 19. The weight and size suggest this is probably a draught shoe. Length of shoe: 146.02 mm. Width: 133.68 mm

A large worn wrought iron horseshoe of a probable late medieval period. The shoe appears to have three nail holes to each branch with fragments of the nails still in situ.

A worn and incomplete dove type or late guildhall horseshoe from the Medieval period, circa 1250-1350 . Only the left branch and part of the toe survive. Two nail holes are evident on the branch, with a third at the toe section, which appears to have been added to. This changes the angle of the shoe and is probably why the third nail is positioned here, which suggests this may be a surgical shoe. The nail is in situ and is of the square headed type and not countersunk. The heel is narrowed with a turned down calkin. Reference: Ivan.G.Sparkes, OLD HORSESHOES. page 13 and 15. Length of…

A corroded iron fragment of a dove type horseshoe from the Medieval period, probably circa late 13th century.
