Another fabulous weekend at Hungerford Arcade. Saturday, we had the Literary Festival with Julian Rota (see separate blog). On Sunday, we had the Hot Forge Day with Andover Forge, owned by David Hemsley. The forge is a local metal work business. They work mainly with steel in the forging, welding and traditional Blacksmith business.
David's mobile forge is a must to see, it looks just like and old Victorian Smithys. Arcade Manager, Alex Rogers, donned the long leather apron and under David's supervision, made a fabulous poker (See pictures below). Well done Alex! David has had a very busy summer travelling around the country to games fairs and steam engine events. He is off to Sandringham next. You can follow David on Facebook and his
