Do I have to pay to enter?

For adults it is £7.50 and children are completely free. To have the full Ironworks experience including the showroom, cafe and village green, you will need to join our membership club. Membership costs £20 for adults while children are free. Each member will receive a membership card which gives you unlimited visits for 12 months. Your membership card will also get you 10% off most goods and refreshments in our showroom and café, exclusive access to events and event tickets, and a whole host of other rewards.

Membership cards are available from our meet and greet entrance upon arrival.


As a company, we are very creative, and our passion lies within the designing and redesigning of fabulous new products. We aim to bring life back to many of the old and wonderful items of iron artwork that are no longer seen today, as well as breathe new life into the world of modern metalwork.

We have been able to delve deep, collect and recreate a huge range of stunning historical items which, otherwise, would have been lost forever. We pride ourselves on antique and vintage products that are a joy to see and a delight to use, as well as developing more contemporary pieces for the modernist home out there. 

Indoor Showroom

Over the years we have had the pleasure of assisting many other companies and organisations by providing them with artefacts, products and props that we have been able to reproduce in stunning, and almost original, quality. We are proud to say that our products can be seen in films such as Nanny McPhee and the all-star cast Murder on the Orient Express 2017 remake, as well as television dramas like Emmerdale and Hollyoaks. The exciting BBC drama The Paradise was provided with our exquisite Victorian lamp posts and lanterns. Our stunning lacework pavilions, gazebos and tree seats have also been featured with Alan Titchmarsh on Love Your Garden with the Royal Alexandria Gazebo displayed at the renowned Grand Designs show, held at the Birmingham NEC.



We have everything from larger than life animals, flowers and water features, through to almost anything you could imagine for the home, garden and grounds. Not only do we make strong, beautiful hardware that is built to last, but we have created delicate fretwork and hand-wrought scroll detailing for particular items too. 

We now feel we can make an even bigger contribution to our local community by opening our doors and sharing what we do with anyone who would like to come along and see for themselves the beauty that can be found in handcrafted products, and the diversity of things that can be made using metal. 

Sculpture Park

Alongside our indoor and outdoor showroom areas, we also dedicate a large span of land to our Sculpture Park. The only one of its kind within the Shropshire region, our parklands offer a beautifully diverse and fascinating array of handcrafted sculpture pieces which have been made by artists from all across the world. 

From our Metal Safari featuring all things wild animals, each life-sized and crafted from recycled sheet metals, to our delicate gazebos, each impressive with their large size and handcrafted scrollwork and detailing, our Sculpture Park offers something truly unique for everyone to see. And, if you find yourself falling in love with a particular piece, you may even end up going home with a crocodile in your car boot! 

Metal Safari Park

Our Sculpture Park is also home to some more famous sculpture pieces such as the Spoon Gorilla and the Knife Angel, designed to tackle various national issues. Definitely worth seeing in the flesh, these incredible sculptures have been crafted from the likes of knives, spoons, one-pound coins and obsolete hospital equipment.

Whilst we are home to these sculptures, they do go out on intermittent tours across the UK. Before visiting us to see a particular piece, please do get in contact to ensure that it will be here for you to view. You can find out more about these unique sculpture projects on our projects page

Forge Cafe

The Forge Café offers a relaxing and interesting place to take a break whilst viewing all the beautiful items on display. Set in the heart of our indoor showroom, the Forge Café allows you to rest a while on leather sofas or sit aloft on fun tractor style stools whilst enjoying a hot brew and a homemade cake or meal.

The Forge Cafe

We also have a large outdoor seating area both on the covered veranda or out on the terrace that enables visitors to enjoy al fresco dining whilst taking in views of the Metal Safari. Here you’ll find our outdoor Cabana serving an array of drinks and our ice-cream parlour, offering a large selection of classic and unique flavours. 

The café serves a delicious range of fresh bean-to-cup coffee as well as high quality loose-leaf tea and, for those with a sweet tooth, we have a wide range of scrumptious homemade cakes, bakes and treats to cater for almost everyone!

Artist Village

Home to an array of artisans of all different creative disciplines, our Artist Village is dedicated to providing local artists with a platform to explore their creativity within a public space whilst allowing our visitors to have a ‘behind-the-scenes’ glimpse. Our Artist Village includes full workshops, pop-up shops and special days dedicated to celebrating particular artforms. If you are visiting us to meet a specific artisan, please get in touch beforehand to ensure that the artist is available. 


We have a fascinating and varied selection of artisans at our centre for you to meet, watch at work and interact with. The village is the central hub for many of the more creative and traditionally crafted pieces seen throughout our website.
