Welbourn Forge

This former forge and blacksmith’s workshop dates from 1864. For more than 100 years it served the needs of farmers and tradesmen. This fascinating Victorian Forge now showcases exhibits of old photographs, original Victorian tools, displays and memorabilia and a restored earth privy.

The forge is fired on the first Saturday of the month. Smithying demonstrations. Group and school visits available by prior arrangement.

The team will be holding an extra opening date on Sunday 3rd July when the forge will be fired 12pm-6pm to support local gardens open as part of the National Open Garden Scheme.
