Blacksmiths Roxby

Blacksmiths Roxby

The Blacksmiths Shop at Roxby, with the distinctive entrance in the shape of a horseshoe, with the date 1858 above the arch. The Blacksmith is now known to be Mr Severs.  Carole Ann Leslie tells us: ”That photograph was not taken in the year 2000, as Mr Herbert Severs had died 20 years or more before that. The horse looks very much like Dolly, my Father and uncle Robert’s working, or cart horse as they were called. Their farm; Home Farm was just down the hill in Roxby. It will be around 1946 I would think”. Oliver Richardson has told us: ” I am not sure why the year 2000 was attached to it. My father probably took it in the 1950s or 1960s”.

    I am not sure why the year 2000 was attached to it. My father probably took it in the 1950s or 1960s.
