To ensure your visit is as enjoyable and fulfilled as possible, please ring ahead to make sure the items you are interested in are available in the size and finish that you want and make a note of the person’s name that you corresponded with.

As a company, we are very creative, and our passion is designing and redesigning fabulous new products. Bringing back to life many of the old and wonderful items of iron artwork that are no longer seen today. We have been able to delve deep, collect and recreate a huge range of stunning historical items which, otherwise, would have been lost forever. Antique and vintage products that are a joy to see and a delight to use.  

Over the years we have had the pleasure of assisting many other companies and organisations by providing them with artefacts, product 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, television dramas like Emmerdale and Hollyoaks.

The exciting drama Paradise Ladies 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.

Sculptures & Animals

Our Brand New Showroom

We have everything from larger than life animals, flowers and water features, through to almost anything you could wish 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 work. 

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 hand crafted products and the diversity of things that can be made using metal. 

We offer membership, for a nominal yearly subscription, that will enable members to visit whenever they wish, enjoy a lovely cup of tea or coffee or perhaps a slice of homemade cake and benefit from discounts and special offers on anything they wish to take away with them.

Showroom Front

We ensure members are kept up-to-date with regular newsletters and information on our shows and exhibits across the UK. 

All monies raised through the membership will be donated back into our local community, given wherever it is most needed.

We love, passionately, what we do. This wonderful resource that can be recycled time and again, is a fundamental part of our lives and a product we cannot function without. To be able to bring it to you in a million different guises is our greatest joy!

Indoor Showroom

Our Café   

The Forge Café offers a relaxing and interesting place to view the talents on display.

Set in the heart of our showroom the café allows you to rest a while on leather sofas or sit aloft on fun tractor style stools, 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 iron safari.

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!

The latest additions to our savoury menu include a range of freshly prepared hot jacket potatoes and homemade soups, from delicious classics to more luxurious and unusual flavours.
