Handyside Blacksmith's Forge at Underfall Yard workshops in Bristol.

Did you know that Andrew Handyside who made Friar Gate bridge also made lots of other items such as
Machine tools, Printing Presses, Hydraulic and pneumatic riveters and Forges and they were made right here in Derby at the Duke Street Foundry "Britannia Iron Works".

At Underfall Yard workshops in Bristol you will find a row of forges in the dock maintenance workshop that were made by Andrew Handyside. See the photograph below.

This was quite a lucky find, Do you know of any other Handyside equipment such as this out there?
If so then please get in touch with details and photographs.

Thanks
