Comment

The village blacksmith would have made farm implements,  horse shoes ( and fitted them), any work which involved forging metal except tin which was the job of a whitesmith.

One of the men seen here was Sam Nunwick.   

At some point, John Benson was also registered as a Smithy and lived in Esholt.

This is now a private house.
