On Saturday, me and Julie went to a place called Michelham Priory. It's a wonderful place, full of history, and is reputed to be the most haunted place in Sussex - should you believe in the supernatural. There is plenty to see & do at any time, but they also host a lot of special events - such as the Medieval weekend which we enjoyed. Wonderfully, the entry price is reasonable and isn't jacked up when a special event takes place. Visit the Sussex Past page to see more.
In keeping with the desire to show living history, the priory grounds also has a working forge, worked and maintained by a skilled blacksmith.
|I have to admit, I loved the bellows.|
After about five minutes, this competent worker had nonchalantly turned out a strong and serviceable hook.
|The hook is made to rest over a wooden beam.|
Time to move on, methinks...
