There's currently a UK TV programme recreating an Edwardian farm that mentioned there's only one master cooper left in England (trade destroyed by metal barrels). My family had a line of saddlers that died out in the 1960s or so, though one of brothers-in-law still works as a thatcher.

Well, not everyone can say that their brother is a "thatcher" and not a former PM. Good on him!
