By the time this is read, villagers might have already noticed that building works have started at The Smiddy. Funded by Tyne Esk Leader and Historic Environments Scotland the chimney, windows & doors and interior sleeper flooring are amongst the restorations taking place. Over the next 2 months there will be strictly no through route for vehicles past the front of the smiddy buildings. Access to the plots will be advised by Keith.
This is a very exciting project for the Smiddy & Hub, ensuring the survival of the fabric and the viability of the working forge for generations to come.
The Smiddy & Hub re-open to the public on a programme of Open Days from May – September.
Blacksmith Sean will still be operating at the forge as much as possible throughout but if you need to contact him, his details are on the smiddy website.
