Visit Latest News to find out more.

Churchill Forge is one of the last working water powered forge mills in Britain, producing metal tools such as spades, shovels and ladles until the early 1970s.

Since closing as a going concern it has been maintained under the stewardship of a group of dedicated volunteers as an important example of the industrial heritage of the West Midlands.

Come and Discover

The Forge is opened to the public on selected days through the summer when visitors can see the water wheels turning. Open days are normally held on Easter Monday and then on the second Sunday of each of the following months to September.

Visits by private groups are possible by arrangement and members of trust are also happy to present on the history of the Forge at meetings of clubs and societies. 

Be part of the story

Churchill Forge exists only due to the voluntary work of its supporters and money raised from the public. We have no other sources of income. Every hour contributed or pound raised makes a difference.
