09 August 2020 We welcomed our first visitors after the coronavirus lockdown. The Forge will now open every Sunday until Bonfire Night.
August 2020 We are ready to welcome our volunteers and general visitors back onto our site after the COVID-19 restrictions have been eased. Precautions are in place to make the site safe and visitors will be closely supervised. Handrails and surfaces will be regularly disinfected. Our newly refurbished toilets are sparkling clean. The volunteers have gone back to building sheds.
March 2020 An impressive range of storage sheds and display area for stationary steam engines has been built. More will follow.
The refurbished toilet block is not yet complete. The plumbing and the electrics are almost finished. When the floor cover is laid, the pedestals can be screwed in place. Wooden staging and ramp is being built to give easy access. And then came the coronavirus lockdown! Patience may be required.
