Pip Radish:
just like the blacksmith's trade is more or less dead

Minor pedantic correction here, Pip - our village blacksmith is alive and kicking, still carrying on as a farrier (shoeing horses) as well as more modern aspects of the job (mending agricultural equipment, wrought-ironwork, etc.)

As long as there's horses there'll always be farriers. :-)
