Photograph of the Day – finishing touches

Colin Dawson from Patterson's Spade Mill putting the finishing touches to a rams headed poker he made during a blacksmithing demonstration at St'Georges Market. He quipped that people ask why it cost's £40 for a poker when he took 40 minutes to make this particular one. Colin was down as part of the weekly demonstrations at the market in the run up to the 'Market Memories Weekend' 25th-27th June which will mark the 10 years since the regeneration of St George's.
