The Falmer village blacksmith
I wonder if anyone remembers my grandfather, Albert Slarks, who was the Falmer village blacksmith for many years. I have fond memories of Forge House – now demolished – where I spent hours watching him shoe horses in the rather dirty but quaint forge. He was a rather quiet but very direct man who served the village in many ways, he was also active at St Lawrence Church.
The village has been spoilt by the road running through it, dividing a very pretty but honest village.
