THE FORGE SHOP
In the forge shop one will find hand-forged products made by Rex and his daughter Katie plus items that have been specially sourced to compliment the work of the forge.
These include cast iron pieces for both home and garden and various metal products made in an alternative style to that of the Lathams.
The forge itself is normally open seven days per week and includes a viewing area allowing members of the public observe Rex and Katie whilst at work. Please note however, we don’t ‘do demonstrations’, all work is in real time according to the current work load. This is a real WORKING forge and business, never the less Rex and Katie are more than happy to answer any questions or queries you have regarding the forge and blacksmith’s work.
