Event: Blacksmith in Residence
In a working colliery the blacksmiths made and repaired anything and everything – drams, rail junctions, pipes, spanners and hammers. If you gave them a sketch of an object, they could make it. The blacksmiths were also responsible for making horse shoes.
Join Len our Resident Blacksmith in the Forge to find out more about the work he would have completed as a Colliery Blacksmith and still does today at Big Pit.
