  1. In the town of Bray there were six forges, but now there are only three. Smiths, Devetts and Furlongs. Devetts and Furlongs are in big Bray and Smiths is in little Bray.
    These forges has been closed down owning to the increase of the moters. The horses has not been required. They have become to slow with their work now and I belive in a few years time there will not be one forge left in the town of Bray because when there is no work for the horses there will be no work for the forges.
