23rd May 2015 - International Blacksmith’s Day, with Real Ale served.

This year, as well as blacksmithing and wheelwrighting demonstrations from 12 to 5pm, we’ll be having a visit from Puzzle the horse who will be being shod, just like the very first event held at the Smithy when it opened in 1995. The whole day will be a huge celebration, and we’ll be open late serving local Real Ales and ciders from 12noon to 11pm, as well as snacks and traditional games, so come and join the party!
The pictures, below are from the 2013 event, where Fabulous sunshine brightened the event and hundreds of visitors enjoyed the day. The blacksmith in the photograph is Jake Scorah of Up Holland Blacksmith
