 Original local made wagon in orchard Dowlish Wake 

 

The newest villager maybe having had a wooden cradle crafted at the start of his or her life, then at the end of their days, making that last journey in a village made coffin. Fashioned by the village carpenter, who more than likely delivered this empty coffin, on a wagon he had built, to some small cottage for it to be placed in the parlour.
