Chain Bridge Forge

Blacksmith working at Spalding Chain Bridge Forge

We have traced the origins of the Forge back to the late 1700’s  when Joseph Rose was the Blacksmith. Today Ryan Atkin is our Blacksmith and he use the same tools to fashion the the metal.

Blacksmithing continues and we still do repairs and accept commissions. The exciting part is that we never have two days the same.

The Forge also offers training taster sessions in Blacksmithing along with a Blacksmithing Club which meets once a month on a Sunday.
