The British Ironwork Centre not only boasts a working smithy and a showroom featuring the biggest choice of quality British ironware for both indoors and garden use but also the Shropshire Sculpture Park featuring a safari in ironwork that has to be seen to be believed!

The venue has lots to see and explore with something for all ages, plus the bonus of a great Plant Hunters Fair to enjoy!

So far our plant fairs have raised over £6000 for Hope House.
