    the last working forge factory in Britain to make tools.. it's just been sold to some company in India and its looking like the huge factory will be knocked down.. I have an uncle that works there so I can find out when everyone is finished working, there may be a few workers around soon.

    tons of history and urban myths about this place!

    The main site is still in use where they still assemble forks n spades with the stuff they import from China. it is the forge part of the site that has closed, the machinery was removed late 2013. I'll put some photos up.
