The Old Forge Wartime House

Step back in Time and experience life on the Home Front of World War 2 at The Old Forge Wartime House.

Our Living History Museum is brought to life by experienced re-enactors who will help teach you more about Rationing, Make do and Mend, Evacuation and The Blitz, Digging for Victory, the duties of the ARP Warden and all aspects of life in war torn Britain. Our aim is to bring history to life in an unique, interesting and interactive way while keeping the experience as factual and authentic as possible. We feel it is important to preserve our history and every effort is made to portray the period as accurately as possible.
