This picture of a hoop-making implement that was reinstalled at the Farrier’s arms pub in Shilbottle 50 years ago led to a phone call from pub owner Eddie McCallum.

It was taken out when work was done to refurbish the pub and has not yet been put back.

Eddie said he always meant to put it back, but had never got round to it.

The implement was one of a number of items that were at the pub at the time.
