Revive the ancient art of blacksmithing. Under the expert tutelage of a master blacksmith, you can take up hammer & tongs and forge something out of metal to take home and show everyone. And enjoy a lovely pub-lunch mid-way through the day, as well.

Be guided in the art of making your very own iron momento! After a safety briefing, you'll get kiitted out with the equipment you need in the working forge workshop. The experienced instructors are there all the way to give lots of help and guidance, so pick up that hammer and anvil and see what you can do! The experience includes time to order lunch or take a picnic in the nearby Oldfield Forge woods.
