Oakham Castle Horseshoe Pin Badge

Pewter pin badge depicting a horseshoe - the symbol of Rutland.

It is believed that the horseshoe became the symbol of Rutland after the De Ferres family arrived in England with William the Conqueror. The family's coat of arms had horseshoes 'the wrong way up' and that is how Rutland has kept them. It stops the devil from making his nest in the bottom.....
