  • A Life on the Water
    A Life on the Water
    Here at Black Country Metal Works, we understand the joys of boating in all its many guises and to this end have created a range of stunning and sometimes nostalgic accessories to further add to your enjoyment.

What could be lovelier, than waking on a warm summer’s morning, to the sound of birds in song and the gentle lapping of water against the sides of your delightful floating home. 

We have recreated the beautiful hand painted water carriers, pails and jugs that were filled to overflowing with bright flowers back in the early boating days when the canals were first “cut” and being Men of Metal, as it were, we have also designed a set of delightful Tiller Pins, Mushroom Vents, Porthole Liners , and chimneys made in bright polished Brass, Copper and of course Black Country Iron.
