Jon Henley's nice series of articles on traditional craftspeople has been mentioned here before, so far 20 or so articles are available online and they also put a really nice slideshow on the website here. http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/series/disappearing-acts

I was out with him in Sheffield last week and tomorrows article will be on one of the last traditional folding knife makers Trevor Ablett.

Here is Jon writing, Chris photographing and Trevor posing.

Thanks for the tip-off Robin. I used to love the Kelham Island Museum as a kid. My Dad (being a local engineering type) used to take us there regularly.
