The Forge being built:
The forge when first opened
and first use.
There have been many changes and the range of equipment has much increased. A gas forge operates alongside the original coke bed and an extraction hood has been added to the latter. Grinders, polishing tools and various forming jigs have been obtained, or made, to facilitate the many projects that have gone through this department.
Ad hoc training sessions are often held for Shed members, along with more formal and regular courses that are held for members of the public who wish to try their hand at learning new skills.
