Working as a carpenter for many years has led to a
keen interest in the hand tools used in "Rural Crafts",
the history of the tools and those that used and made

Many of the tools that pass through my hands are
“Blacksmith” made and are my main interest, especially
those of the Southern counties here in the UK.

I am compiling notes along with pictures of these tools
which I am currently putting into book form listing as
many of the Blacksmiths, Smiths and Farriers that I find
through my extensive research-Sussex has taken me six
years so far and I still manage to find new records today.

I would welcome any information, letter heads that you
may have, including tools that I can photograph that can
be used in the compilation of these books, the
information would be edited with the title:

           “With kind permission along with Your Name”.

Please go via the “CONTACT” button above with any
photographs, letter heads or other Information.

Thank you.
