Daventry is no stranger to traffic. Situated on one of the main coaching routes from London to Holyhead, it’s thought that as many as eighty long-distance coaches used to pass through the town each day. Many of the inns along the way were used for stabling the horses and refreshing the travelers. Daventry thus became a thriving coaching town in the 19th Century and provided work for many people including saddlers, harness makers and especially whip makers.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Treasure Act in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
