Blacksmith’s Tools

Blacksmith’s Tools

A selection of tools from blacksmith forges in the Helmsdale area. The blacksmith, or smiddy as he was better known, was held in high esteem by his community and people would gather in his workshop to hear the latest gossip and pass the time of day. Visit Timespan Museum and see our reconstructed smiddy workshop and hear stories told around the forge.
