Project Start

The Friends of Chain Bridge Forge assemble at the Forge to mark the formal start of the project. The project was formally started by Councillor Christine Lawtown. The aims of the project are as follows:

  • Conservation

–      To create a living museum which tells the story of the Forge, the people, the Blacksmith craft and the relationship to the community that it served

–      Demonstrate the Blacksmith craft and to involve others

  • Participation

–      Develop the Friends of the Forge to manage and develop this asset

–      Fund Raising

  • Learning

–      Tell this story to schools and other interested parties


It’s key that we do this work now while the people of Spalding who used the forge are still available to contribute to its success.
