So that we may keep all of our valued Volunteers and treasured visitors to the Cottage and Forge safe during the COVID-19 outbreak, it has been decided that from today, Saturday, 21st March 2020, the Blacksmith’s Cottage and Forge Book Barn will be

closed until further notice.  The next open day for the Cottage was set to be Sunday, 26th April 2020 as part of the National Trust Heritage Festival.  Sadly, this open day will not take place.

The decision to re-open our site will be made following advice when it is safe to do so.  The Committee of Management offers our apology for any inconvenience this may cause you.  We look forward to welcoming the return of all our visitors and book lovers in the (hopefully) not too distant future.
