Set amid beautiful Dartmoor countryside in the village of Sticklepath, this last remaining water-powered forge in England gives a unique insight into village life in the 19th century. In its heyday the foundry made 400 tools a day, including sickles, scythes and shovels for West Country farmers and miners. Note: narrow entrance to car park: Height restrictions apply.
¡ Demonstrations and tours of the machinery every hour.
¡ Watch the large waterwheels driving the tilt hammer and grindstone.
