Churchill Forge, Churchill Lane, Churchill, Churchill and Blakedown - Wyre Forest

Early C19 hand forge building that made spades and shovels, comprising three brick buildings, two water wheels, a dam and large mill pond. The forge is still in working order and is managed by the Churchill Forge Trust. The designation for the site was reviewed 2016 and the buildings are now listed buildings only. The whole of the site is a scheduled monument. Funding has been secured to develop a business plan for the site and prepare a proposal for funding by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Conservation works are currently ongoing to repair the spillway weir.
