The Smithy is based in an original Blacksmith's Forge on Kiln Lane that was still operating until the late 1970's. The Smithy has a FREE permanent exhibition or original artefacts that detail the heritage of Eccleston. Maps, photographs and documents relating to the area are available for casual browsing or more serious research. Discover the skills of the Farmer, the Blacksmith, the Wheelwright, the Farrier, and other local craftsmen. Amongst these displays are some of the original tools from the site that were used in the forge and the Wheelwright's shop.
