I think these 'ovens' may be one of two things. If this building was once a seed shop, then they may well have housed caged birds - seedsman often kept bright finches and canaries to show how they thrived on the seed. Or they could be for market day - villagers could deposit eggs, butter, etc. and the 'ovens' would keep it cool until whoever was going to market picked it up

Since posting pictures I've come to realise what treasures not matter how big or how small we have in this country. This is a great quirky house, a mystery. Thank you Joyce, glad you enjoyed...Sue

I don't care what they were used for, I just love this house and it's ovens!!! But it sure was a good way to keep the heat out of the kitchen if they were used as actual ovens. Many thanks for this one Sue!! :)))

kevin I found a comment from the photographer and what he thinks these 'ovens' were for. Personally I'm with you on this one, maybe for baking bread. A bit of an enigma. Thanks...Sue

This is a very old building, maybe 17C. These 'ovens' would be blocked off from the road. It makes for an interesting puzzle. Thanks Denise...Sue

Isn't it more likely that there was another room (kitchen) on this end of the house. Before there was a road so close? A puzzle within a puzzle. Thanks, Sue - kevin
