  7. It's wonderful to see these old skills survive. I guess there are blacksmiths around here but they are hard to find. The next lane to our own is named "Smithy Lane" but there is no smithy now.

  10. It looks fascinating and you covered it well. I get a little nervous close to hot things, like bubbling vats of cheese, especially if they smell so good you want to dip your hand in it. Anyway, good "at work" shots and I'd be mesmerized watching a black smith.
