Blacksmith In Weaverthorpe - a Memory of Weaverthorpe.

My great grandad's brother was the blacksmith in the 1930s in Weaverthorpe.  This was my father's grandfather's brother. My father went to school at Weaverthorpe but lived in Helperthorpe. His father, Allison Clark was a farmer in Helperthorpe and lived at Corner House until he died in 1983.  My father lives in Australia (Melbourne) with his wife Jean.  Both are in their 80s.

A memory shared by Stephen Clark on Jun 24th, 2007.

My dad was evacuated to Weaverthorpe from Hull during the war. Apparently he would get in trouble at the school because he would go and spend his days with the blacksmith instead, watching him work! I assume this was your relative. Lovely to find this here. Thank you.
