The Old Forge, Norton Lindsey

Description of this historic site

At the front the Old Forge is a four-bay brick building of probably mid 19th-century date, with three two-storey bays and one single-storey. The original element consists of the two central two-storey bays on stone foundations. There is a strong possibility that the stone foundations originally supported an earlier timber-framed building, the superstructure of which was removed and replaced in brick, re-using the original foundations.
