Cousland Blacksmith helps Mercat Cross Restoration

Blacksmith Sean Cockburn of Cousland Smiddy has been working on a small piece of restoration of the ironwork of the door to the historic Mercat Cross in Edinburgh's Royal Mile. The commission was the result of the introduction of Sean, when he took over the tenancy of Cousland Smiddy, by the Trust to The Incorporation of Hammermen of Edinburgh.

A ceremony was held in the Capital yesterday for it's re-dedication.
