Landscape photograph of Ford Forge. View from the northwest.
(Image from March 1973)
- Notes about the Image:
This 'is a view of the Ford Forge complex, as viewed from the Heatherslaw side of the Till. At bottom left, the shallow waters rippling through river-bed pebbles indicate the location of the ford. Beyond that a wall with blocked openings, formerly the outer wall of the fitting shop of the spade forge. The blue slated build behind the above-mentioned wall had once comprised an iron warehouse and a finishing shop, while the larger, red-tiled building comprises the oldest part of the forge complex.
Using zoom and some imagination, the shadow of a gable and chimney of an earlier building can be detected within the side wall at the right hand end of the red-tiled building – this was the Manor Corn Mill of some antiquity.'
