Historic Tools of North Castle

Welcome to Historic Tools of North Castle where you may tour the tools, implements and patent models collected by Mr. J. Norrish Thorne over his lifetime.

Many of these tools were used in trades not practiced in North Castle today including trades such as wagon making, ice harvesting, cobbling, coopering and farming.
