Wimpole Hall Blacksmith's Forge

I was invited by Magnus the Wimpole Hall blacksmith to do some photography in the Hall’s traditional forge. This is the original building with all of the blacksmith’s tools from the time when the hall was a working country estate. There is no electricity in the building so the light is very poor, the workshop is also very small and so I had limited space in which to work. Simon one of the other Wimpole guys was being given some tips by Magnus on the finer points of the craft.
