I visited the Woodford Furnace Festival this week.
It really is a unique event that celebrates the village’s iron-making heritage dating back to 1681.
It is great to see groups from all over the world travelling to Woodford to take part, including people from the US, the UK and other European countries.
The festival includes an exhibition, guided tours and demonstrations, including smelting iron from iron ore and blacksmiths making anything from tools to works of art.
It is fantastic to see tourists visiting the area and adding to the economy of Woodford.
