Wooden Ram

This delightful wooden ram is situated above the the Smith England Hairdressing Salon.

The wooden ram above dates from the shop’s former use by Stonehenge Woolen Industries, set up in the early C20th by Catherine Lovibond, with the aim of regenerating the rural economy. The firm continued in business till 1959. *

The ram was recently renewed by Salisbury Civic Society. Situated next to the salon is this wonderful gateway.

  1. The gateway is beautiful but I love that first image, Cheryl, its perspective and the flag lying between the ram’s horns. Great capture!

  2. Oh yeah, the “fleece” is usually painted gold though?!
