This garage was intended originally as an agricultural equipment shop. Robin wisely looked to diversifying his business knowing that the age of the horse was rapidly drawing to a close.
This is a mixture of a free-hand sketch and computer graphics to try and re-create an image of the smithy - sadly (following an appeal) it appears that no photos exist of the building.
Stryd Faen Smithy (1)
All that's left of Robin's smithy, just a few stones denoting where the building once stood - a hive of activity with farmers from far and wide bringing their horses here to be shod....all gone...
Stryd Faen Smithy (2)
Bushes and trees where once three smiths shaped metal with all their might with sparks and flames erupting out of both furnaces and the smell of burning hooves in the air....what a sight it must have been....
Tan y Fynwent
This was Robin's home at one time, but he later converted it into a store. It was here that he kept his penny-farthing bike.
Tan y Fynwent Railings
A neglected reminder of the blacksmiths trade are all that remain of the front of Tan y Fynwent.
Robin Go' - The End
To finish this tribute gallery to Robin Go', the words of R.J. Roberts of Gellilydan summing up his memories of Robin: "Bob the blacksmith from Traws was the best by far. He's a credit to the area. Bob and his family in the Stryd Fain smithy - sadly we'll never see their like again."
