Saturday was a lovely bright, crisp and sunny day – a perfect day for St Clement’s Day at Finch Foundry. There was a very good turnout of visitors too and a good turnout of blacksmiths. (St Clement is the patron saint of blacksmiths). Full photo set here.
The annual blacksmith’s competition is underway
First lady I have seen for a few years
The classic Finch Foundry snail
Finch’s anvil which the legendary Dave Denford ‘fires’ throughout the day – good to see Dave at Finch and looking well
One of the many fires
Repairs are about to start of the hammer at the Foundry
Should all be ready and up and running again for next season
The team from Lydford Gorge was selling Christmas goodies
The water wheel continues to turn!
