Official measure of Daventry; One Imperial Bushel

Official measure of Daventry Borough for one imperial bushel. The bushel measure is engraved with 'Borough Of Daventry 1825' on one side and 'Imperial Bushel' 'County of Northampton' on the other. The Borough of Daventry inscription was scored out, probably in 1888 when Northampton County Council took over responsibility of weights and measure testing from the Borough council.
