Combe Mill

Pattern Shop

Amoungst all the other things made at Combe Mill were parts for wheelwrights. The belt-driven lathe was used to make the wooden hubs and the recently restored band saw was used to cut out wheel rim sections called ‘felloes’.  Different felloe patterns can be seen for various diameter cart wheels.  

Also on display are many of the tools and artefacts associated with all the various typical trades required in support of Blenheim Palace.

These include carpenters', blacksmiths', metal casters’, wheelwrights’, roof slaters’, pattern makers’ and furniture makers’ tools.
