Citation:  Tanner, Heather and Robin. Wiltshire Village. London: Impact Books, 1987, opp. p. 57.

Place:  England
Notes:  To the right of the chapel are two cornricks. Just in front of the tree in the upper left, there appears to be a hayrick. 'Haymaking begins in early June; then if rain should follow there may be an aftermath. Every minute of daylight is used, from dawn of the first day, when the mower knives cut crisply through the dew-drenched grass, till dusk of the last, when neighbors as well as farmhands join in the work of hoisting the haycocks on their pitchforks to the men making the ricks.' Tanner and Tanner, pp. 124-125.

Notes:  Beyond the stone stile, made of Cotswold limestone, a path runs down to a farmstead made of the same material. More transitory but equally impressive are the tidy ricks, perhaps of hay, and the modest cocks, certainly of hay, in the nearby field.

Title of Work:  Wiltshire hoop-raved wagon

Citation:  Tanner, Heather and Robin. Wiltshire Village. London: Impact Books, 1987, p. 80.
Index Words:  wagon, transport
Place:  England
Notes:  The ricks in the background are conical and have ornaments at their peak, characteristic of corn (cereal) not hay. So let 's focus on the Wiltshire hoop-raved or bow-raved haywain of which 'the rave or surboard continues from the front wheel and rises in a curve over the back wheel which is higher. The shape of the wagon, side view, is so graceful that one could imagine the curve to have been made for beauty's sake alone. In fact, however, this and all the other less obvious curves of the wagon -- for scarcely a timber of it is straight -- were born of necessity, and each necessity was born of another. The wagon bed was limited to three feet then inches in width; the addition of raves would extend its carrying capacity by sixteen inches at either side. The width of the bed was determined by the width of the wheel-track (in this case five feet eight inches), which had to depend on the distance between the ruts in the road. The continual come-and-go of carts of the traditional width hade made those ruts, and they in turn, since they could not be altered save by road engineering unheard of a century ago, perpetuated the tradition.' Tanner and Tanner, pp 81-82.

Index Words:  wagon
Place:  England
Notes:  Simeon Robbins' wagon bears the head board date of 1851, though none of its kind was considered worthy to stand with the pompous furniture and ornate bric-a-brac chosen to represent the art level of England at the Great Exhibition that year. Indeed, had this very wagon been selected as an exhibit no-one would have thought the choice more improper than Amos Brinkworth [its maker]; he counted himself no artist, but a simple wheelwright.' Tanner and Tanner, pp. 85-86.

Title of Work:  Hoop-rave showing strouters

Citation:  Tanner, Heather and Robin. Wiltshire Village. London: Impact Books, 1987, p. 83.
Index Words:  wagon
Place:  England
Notes:  The finished wagon, built as stoutly as need required, was over-heavy, and to lighten the frame all surplus wood was gouged away with the draw-shave -- no more than a chamfer here and a nick there; but in this way over two hundredweight could be removed (one-ninth of the entire weight) without loss of strength. Hence the beautiful sccops and scallops to be found not only in the parts more easily seen, like the edges of the raves, the shutlocks and the strouters (the wooden buttresses that strenghten the sides), but also in hidden parts, and notably in the under-carriages beneath the wagon-bed.' Tanner and Tanner, p. 85.
