Wilf Skelton shoeing a horse.
His workshop was in Church Lane near the gates to
St Alban's Church.
The photo is probably taken in the 1940's.
We have no idea who the helper is.

"Hooping Day", which describes Wilf at
work in his yard.

Here is a photograph of the workshop
when it was being restored 2002
