With the (hopefully) continued cautious reopening the public places in England, it seemed like a good time to do a refresh of our Blacksmiths pubs list.
The good news is that almost all the pubs on our list appear to be staying open.
Some of the pubs appear to have taken the decision to rebuild or refresh their websites – some now have websites were before they didn’t have ones. There will continue to be hard times ahead for English pubs, but it is heartening that almost all on our list appear to be taking hold of the challenges that the post-Covid will bring.
My connections are with Watford – that’s where I spent my first years until I was 13, we then moved to Abbots Langley. Until spring 2020 my forge was in Bushey, Herts. The new forge is in Chiswell Green – on the outskirts of St Albans, so I’ll be getting to know St Albans a bit more.
We keen to develop local links
We’re keen to make connections with the local community, and want to be identified as a Chiswell Green business. We’ll also be visiting local businesses over the next for weeks to introduce the forge.
Over time we would like Chiswell Green people to become proud that there’s a blacksmith forge in their area.
My work comes from Watford, Hemel Hempstead and St Albans and the surrounding towns and villages.
In the wider area, it also comes from south west Herts, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and north London.
I’m happy to work for people and businesses from anywhere.
I’m proud to now be a St Albans blacksmith! I’m not forgetting Watford & Hemel Hempstead.
