A fine collection


A beautiful collections of prints by David Townsend photography

At Yalding Forge we create unique metal work items using both traditional and modern craft techniques. We welcome visitors to our traditional forge to browse the showroom and see how a piece of metal can be transformed. Occasionally we may be out at a fitting, so if you are in Yalding specially to visit us please call ahead the day before to confirm we are open.

Each piece, from gates and handrails to smaller items like wine racks and bookends will be handmade by our team at Yalding Forge and we welcome enquiries for bespoke orders. Call us or come and visit us to chat over design ideas if you are after something special. As a local family run business we offer a personal service and believe your order should be tailored to suit you.

As well as making items to order we also stock a selection of handforged items in our showroom such as trivets, fire baskets, pokers, coat racks and candle sticks, ideal gifts to take away.

We are 5th generation blacksmiths and farriers and have been at Yalding forge since 1950. We are located in the high street of the picturesque village of Yalding.

Photography is a love affair with life

There is only you and your camera. The limitations is your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.
