An incomplete copper alloy combination padlock. The lock comprises a cylindrical case made up of five rotating discs, each of which would originally have rotated around a central axis to allow the letter combination to be achieved, and a fixed disc at each end. The remains of the axis bar can be seen within the discs which are now corroded in place. The fixed discs at either end would have held the rotating ones in place. The remnants of an arched hasp or shackle project from the two outer discs. From intact outer disc, running left to right, the symbols on each disc are: (1) O Z V …

A Medieval iron barrel padlock case of Goodall's Type D (in Biddle, 1990), with a hinged shackle, locked and corroded in place. The spring and bolt are enclosed within the case. Barrel padlocks with shackles (Type D) were intended to secure human or animal limbs (Goodall 1990 p.1001). Examples from Winchester date from the late 10th to early 15th century. The case is cylindrical and c.30mm in cross-section, widening to c.40mm diameter at the open end. The shackle (c.10.5mm diameter cross-section) is hinged at one end (to a projection from the case) and curves in an arc to the opposi…

A cast copper-alloy medieval barb-spring padlock. This example is complete as the internal iron fittings have corroded, fusing the normally detached and separately cast end to the main padlock case. The padlock case is rectangular in section with flat short ends, one with the key hole and the other which would normally detach from the rest of the padlock case. The longer sides of the case have straight edges which curve out to the centre and then curve back in, creating an oval centre. On the top face there are integrally cast projections projecting upwards at 90 degrees at each end, b…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy front plate from a padlock of post-medieval date. It is circular in form with two protruding lugs at the top. The bar or mechanism was made of iron given the orange corrosion product found on one side of the plate. Arranged longitudinally down the centre of both faces is an incised rectangular section. This is divided into three squares with incised double linear borders and incised crosses. This is the front plate as the central panel of the three is replaced by a keyhole, made from two conjoined punched circles. This padlock is similar to a number on t…
