Visit Chain Bridge Forge in Spalding on a Wednesday, Friday or Sunday to see the new blacksmith Will Pegram at work.

His day begins by lighting the fire in the forge, and that has to be stoked hourly.

Once the fire is burning brightly, Will will begin to forge a few pieces for the gift shop, or, if there are visitors, he will demonstrate his skills and work with people to create small items.

He does his drawings and design work at home in the evenings to come up with new ideas for gifts or bespoke items for clients.

During his degree course Will built up a portfolio of work, including items such as a coffee table, free standing light sculptures and fire baskets.

Chain Bridge Forge’s other blacksmith is Steve Harper, of Weston.
