Duncan Berry and the furnace

"Iron Master" Duncan Berry beside the furnace. The "charging hole" where charcoal, ore and limestone are fed into the furnace is open. Note the electric blower which supplied the blast. The piping from the blower ran through the furnace to pre-heat the air before discharging into the fire.

Duncan joined the Friends of Long Pond Ironworks in 2001 and had an immediate impact by using his iron-making experience to enable the making of iron at the site for the first time in more than 120 years.
