We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

The blacksmith's forge

The blacksmith’s forge is where the canal company’s ironwork used to be made. Today, the forge is still in use and home to the museum’s resident blacksmith Alex Price.

Alex will be happy to talk to you about original commissions and larger works such as gates and railings.

Alex is on site most days, Monday to Friday plus some event days. Whilst he is always busy with his work, he is also happy to be asked questions.

And for people who really want to get hands on in an historic forge, Alex runs day long smithing classes - contact him for full details.

To make a specific appointment, call Alex on 0151 355 7267.
