A BUSINESS has forged its way into Wooburn by moving a quarter of a mile down the road.

The forge, a well-known landmark in Beaconsfield Old Town, has moved and officially opened on Monday at its new site on Lillyfee Farm, off Broad Lane, Wooburn Common.

The business, Lake Muckley & Co Ltd, has been owned by the same family since the old forge in Beaconsfield was built by blacksmith Fred Muckley on the site of the Black Horse pub in 1930.

The farm is a quarter of a mile down the road from its original site in Wycombe End and Mr Muckley's daughter Pamela Caplin who inherited the business after her father's death said the new premises were perfect.

She said: "It's a lovely Grade II listed building. There are still the old hooks on the wall and some old harnesses lying around.
