Gary Davis stopped by the Horseshoe Forge in Ford with a pair of horse-drawn gypsy caravans on his tour around north Northumberland and the Borders last week.

It was a photo opportunity in a picturesque spot that he could not resist.
He has toured around the region for 18 years to give a quick local history lesson to the many tourists who stop and ask questions.
The horseshoe forge is now an antiques and rare books business.
