How did Abbey Dale Forge become synonymous with high quality edge tools? Rising from a single grinding wheel over 400 years ago, the forge brought both wealth and bankruptcy to its tenants, but also fortune, misfortune and even tragedy to its workers. Hear about the successes and failures of the men who strived to develop this site, and the lives of some of their workers.
