These photos are part of a library assembled by members of the "Gospel Hall" (later the Evangelical Church) on Sutton Road in about 1980 for the 50th anniversary of the buliding of the Chapel. They show various views of the Forge, which stood at the fork between Sutton Road and Plaisters Lane in the heart of the village. Also included is a photo of William Clarke, the village blacksmith at the time, presumably with his wife.
