About Chainbridge Forge
A working forge
Chain Bridge Forge is a living museum, lead by volunteers. The building dates back to the mid 1700’s and has been in continuous use as a blacksmith workshop. The museum is small independent museum receiving no public funding for running costs.
We have a blacksmith and we take on commercial work, demonstrations and taster sessions.
We also use our local history collection to do talks, particularly talks for people with dementia providing reminiscence sessions.
Learning outside the classroom provides opportunities for both formal and informal educational experiences.
Chain Bridge Forge can be inspiring and informative in so many ways and offers experiences which can not be replicated in a school environment.
The website is supported by social media and is predicted to achieve 150,000 views this year.
We use this to communicate with our community and receive feedback.
HLF funded us to create a virtual reality blacksmith in conjunction with the Dr John Murray of the University of Lincoln.
From this project we were able to set up an Innovation Lab within the Forge which includes 3D Printers/ Scanners and Virtual Reality.
We take on paid work for the community.
