Woodford Furnace Festival
August 19th – 25th
The Festival focuses on producing iron from local ore using bloomery furnaces. These are clay shafts and what comes out is wrought or forgeable iron. Only local ores, fuel (charcoal) and clay are used.
The iron is made by smelters from Ireland and much further afield. Irish blacksmiths make objects from the iron made.
