Forge yard would have been very close to the shop I remember going to the forge with my granddad. It was at the top of the lane that led down to the old mill.

My uncle Ralph James Geal worked for Miss Woods for years until she shut the shop, he worked with a gent called Percy Cloake and bought my first bike from him for 10 shillings, sorry 50p, I am afraid I cant help with your relations regards Woods. I spent a lot of my childhood in and around Westerham and still have friends there and whenever the route takes me I drive through the village, I used to live at Moorhouse on a farm. Wonderful memories.
