Heritage Blacksmith Partnership was created to service the needs of the UK heritage industry, as well as the creation of traditionally made metalwork.
We specialise in the sensitive and responsible conservation of important ironwork, and accomplish this with a combination of high levels of craft skill and solid grounding in conservation theory and practice. Both partners are accomplished smiths and are two of only a handful of individuals to have completed the NHIG Bursary in heritage blacksmithing (funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic Royal Palaces and English Heritage amongst others).
Whether working from our traditional blacksmiths forge in the Cotswolds or our clean modern painting and conservation warehouse, your heritage ironwork is in the hands of people who understand modern conservation practise, allied with the experience and skills in traditional blacksmithing to decipher and replicate the techniques used by the original maker.
The partners have worked on the Tijou screens (Hampton Court Palace), South Choir Gates (York Minster), Banqueting House Gates (Whitehall), The House of Lords (Millbank), The Peacehall Gates (Halifax) and cleaning elements of the Staffordshire Hoard (Birmingham Museum). Recent work includes;
