Resident Blacksmith David Baynes

Chris Hammond hands over the reigns of Blacksmithing to David believes in keeping the old tradition of Blacksmithing alive and is keen to pass on his skills to future generations. So why not come and have a taster experience or make a coat hook. Children are also welcome.

His work also embraces a modern context and he likes to show this in the items he makes.

David is keen to take on commissions large or small. He will also produce items like Gates, Railings,
House Plaques, Candle holders etc so why not come to the Forge and let him explain his craft.

David is the latest in proud tradition of Blacksmiths at Chain Bridge Forge which dates back to the mid 1700’s. Click on the menu to the righthand of the screen to find out more about these Blacksmiths.
