The Forge and Woodcarver


The Powderham Forge has been regenerated to its former glory by our new award-winning blacksmith, Andrew Hall AWCB. He has won international and national awards for his outstanding decorative ironwork and is well known for his work at Branscombe Forge. As a fully working forge you can see the blacksmiths at work using traditional skills and techniques.

The Forge & showroom is an independent business on the estate therefore opening times vary throughout the season. It is generally open Monday to Friday, but for specific days please call the Forge on 01626 891163.

To get to the forge simply follow the path on from the Walled Garden Play Area & Pets corner. You will turn down to the left just before you reach the Woodland Garden.
