Mayor of Prescot Invited to visit Metalcrafts

The Mayor of Prescot, Cllr Mark Burke, was invited to view the recently refurbished premises of Metalcrafts, which is a traditional Blacksmiths workshop on our doorstep just down the road from Prescot Town Hall. There have been various businesses in this historic building, based on St. Helens Road since 1799. Metalcrafts is a family business which has been in situ for over a quarter of a century and is operated by 4 brothers, Chris, Andy, Gary and Daniel. They are renowned for their ironcraft expertise and were chosen to present Sir Bradley Wiggins with a bespoke piece when he represented Prescot in the Tour of Britain. The Mayor had a go on the anvil and created a beautiful piece of scrollwork (or did he haha) Chris said “we appreciate Prescot Town Council and the Mayor supporting Prescot businesses during these difficult times” Mark added “its amazing to see real craftsmen plying their trade in the heart of Prescot. You sense the history of this building as soon as you enter it. This is old school sweat and tears workmanship before your very eyes. It’s utterly timeless.”
