The Blacksmiths have been served a Notice to quit by the RWA. Unless this is overturned this will be the last opportunity to see Guido working the old Blacksmith Shop.

Please promote the Open day by printing off the Poster for ATP's Blacksmith Shop Open Day - 17th August 2008 (1MB PDF) and promoting it.

Apart from turning up to the Open Day you can support the retention of the ATP’s active heritage Blacksmith Shop by lobbying for its continuation of the Blacksmith shop.
