Where you'll be

The forge is set in Brundish, a tiny village in the heart of Suffolk. It is a full time, fully equipped large industrial forge, full of wonderful machinery dating back to the 1800’s.

The forge is actually situated in a farm setting, and we do say you have to watch out for the Geese!
