I used to love going into Mr.Sheltons smithy when I was a young lad....it was fascinating to watch him at work.Sadly another bit of Tingley's past gone.

I too used to like going to watch the blacksmith at work.All that heat, the smell and the patient hors waiting to have its shoes fitted. The road to the side of this went up to the Working man's club.
