Cowan Bridge Smithy - a Memory of Cowan Bridge.

To the left hand side of the A65 opposite the Village Shop stands the Smithy - this is significant to me as my grandfather Thomas Glover was the village Blacksmith until his retirement. The Smithy was demolished after he retired and my parents later had a bungalow built for themselves behind where it had originally stood. Their house opposite Bronte Cottages (Bronte Cottage) had been subject to compulsory purchase and demolition for the road widening and building of the new roadbridge in the 1960's.
