Blacksmith's Forge

Experience the thrill of seeing the blacksmith at work in MOTAT's Historic Village.

Date & Time

Operating most Live Days


Feel the heat of the fire and the clang of the hammer striking molten metal as the MOTAT blacksmith brings life to the forge. Using traditional tools and methods the blacksmith creates useful and beautiful objects, including some of the parts we need to maintain the heritage collection, as well as keeping the horses shod.

The forge is operational most weekends, live days, and some special events.

Inside the forge


We recommend parking in our large car park at M2 and enjoying the free vintage tram ride between sites.
