Visit Oldfield Forge and join the merry band of blacksmiths to make your very own forged iron keepsake! Spend time discovering how the age old methods and traditions of blacksmithing are being kept very much alive at this fascinating workshop and academy in the country. Deep in the heart of the West Herefordshire countryside you’ll find Oldfield Forge.
It’s a bucolic scene, with wildflower meadows, woodlands and even little shepherding huts to chill out in whilst the children play outside. As well as the chirping of the birds and swishing of the trees in the wind, you might just hear the sound of metal on metal. That’ll be the bustling blacksmith academy… Not only unique in Herefordshire, this is the country’s only purpose built blacksmithing training facility.
The academy operates alongside a very successful family run ironwork business producing everything from latches, stays, bells and tie backs, to bespoke designed and forged gates and furniture. Creating ironworks in both contemporary and classic styles, this is our industrial heritage at its very best, producing high quality practical and artistic ironwork. And don’t just take our word for it, this forge carries out a lot of work for historical and ecclesiastical buildings looked after by the likes of National Trust, English Heritage and Cdaw in Wales.
And indeed it’s fascinating to watch the skilled blacksmiths at work, as the iron is heated to red hot, then twisted, bent and cut to create the most amazing forms and shapes. But of course, you’re not just here to watch, this is very much a hands on forging experience and you will be joining the Herefordshire blacksmiths to learn how to make your very own, bespoke iron keepsake, handcrafted by yourself.
