The Lord's Oven

The oven of the local Lord which stood since medieval days in the centre of the town, and was used by the whole community, was destroyed during The Revolution at the request of local bakers.

This revolutionary act was intended to help free the peasants from their ties to the local lord. They have, since then, been tied to the bakers.
