And here's the new home of Medieval Arrows - a beautiful farrier's forge with parts dating back to the 12th century, steeped in local history. According to the Lord of the Manor who owns the land, the stone for the walls came from the left-over building materials for the nearby 12th century Twynham Castle, and apparently it was at this forge that Walter Tirel had his horse reshod during his escape to France after killing William II in the New Forest. The river that runs alongside the forge is the Avon and Tyrell's Ford is a few minutes down the road where he crossed.
