Have your say

There is a new blacksmith in charge at Chain Bridge Forge in Spalding.

Chris Hammond finished making the gates for Cowbit Church and then handed over the reigns of blacksmithing to David Baynes.

David trained as a blacksmith, but then added the skills of a farrier to his knowledge.

David is well-known locally for his work with horses, but he has now decided to combine this with his first love of blacksmithing.

David said he was looking forward to the new challenge at the forge.

David will be offering blacksmithing demonstrations, tasters, repairs and commissions.
