Anybody who wandered through the Soulce Valley in days gone by would have seen a thin plume of smoke rising from many a small building and heard a uniform knocking on an anvil. That would have been a nail maker. After the Second World War, this craft came to a sudden end when the demand for shoe nails for army boots suddenly stopped. The old nail smithy in Soulce is open to visitors by arrangement.
