Combe Mill

Looking for an experience with a difference?  Need an unusual gift? Why not try your hand at being a blacksmith?

A  Blacksmithing Experience voucher entitles the holder to a half-day at Combe Mill with one of our blacksmiths. The recipient will get a personally guided tour of the Mill and will have time under instruction to make a poker and perhaps a toasting fork.  

A warm welcome awaits and refreshments will be provided.

The booking must be arranged in advance to suit the availability of a blacksmith but can usually be fixed for any half-day.

The cost is an affordable 50 and vouchers can be purchased by completing and returning the order form which can be downloaded by clicking here, alternatively email  

What’s included in your 3-hour experience

What happens on the day

On arrival at Combe Mill you will be shown around the Mill by a volunteer before joining your blacksmith for a safety briefing and a two and a half hour session making an iron poker and/or a toasting fork.  You will be provided with personal protective gear – eye protection, leather apron and gloves but should wear sturdy shoes and clothes.  Once finished and refreshed, you will be presented with a certificate of completion and may have your photograph taken at the Forge.

Points to Note

We can arrange to post the voucher to the recipient directly if instructed.
