Finch Foundry, Sticklepath, Okehampton, Devon, EX20 2NW

Witness the power of water at the last working water powered forge in England.
Come and see massive water wheels driving huge hammers, cutting shears and a spinning stone grinding wheel against the beautiful backdrop of Dartmoor. Discover the story spanning 200 years of the Finch family and the rise and fall of one of the biggest tool manufacturers in the West Country. We also have a tearoom on site serving tasty treats and light refreshments as well as a National Trust shop stocking all the usual National Trust goodies.

This event took place in September 2015 and the entry is now archived.
