Bentham Collection - Links

 

  The purpose of this page. Some two hundred years ago thousands of flax bales from Russia, each with a seal attached, were stored in the old Customs House and warehouses on St George's Quay at Lancaster and were later transported by horse and cart over the border to the Flax Mills at High Bentham in North Yorkshire. This Customs House is now the Lancaster Maritime Museum and soon these seals will return to where they once were on their journey. A fitting new home for them as without the Customs House the flax trade in Bentham may not have even existed, or prospered as it did.

  These links are a step by step explanation of the seals in the PeaceHavens Collection which helped  rewrite the books on Russian Flax Bale Seals.
