Full Description

The smithy is attached to the north side of the cottage, No. 37, which belongs to the Harpur Crewe Estate with Mr Wood as tenant; he uses the forge as a workshop. The forge is built of rubble with brick dressings, making use of the bullnosed bricks common in late 19th and early 20th century Ticknall, and demonstrating that it was built by the estate. The forge contains two hearths, likely to date to around 1900, but the building itself is probably half a century earlier. (1)
