Do I have to pay to enter?

A large portion of the park is available to view for free, including the fantastic Extinction Trail. However, as we are a members attraction, to have the full Ironworks experience including the showroom, cafe and village green, you will need to join our membership club. Membership costs just £5 for adults while children are free. Each member will receive a membership card which gives you unlimited visits for 12 months. Your membership card will also get you 10% off goods and refreshments in our showroom and café, exclusive access to events and event tickets, and a whole host of other rewards.

Membership cards are available from our meet and greet entrance upon arrival. 

Directions:  Situated on the main A5 just outside of Oswestry, Shropshire. Put SY11 4JH into your Satnav and look for signs for the British Ironwork Centre – you can’t miss us!

Our Show Areas

Our indoor and outdoor display areas in Oswestry span across four acres of land and are home to over 50 unique wall lights and over 50 different styles and sizes of traditional Victorian lamp posts. We accommodate both new projects and the restoration of original Victorian Streetlights by offering a range of components and replacement lanterns.

Indoor Lighting Display

Indoor Lighting Display

The Centre, in most cases, can offer a walk-in consultancy service with most customers able to take away their desired lights that same visit, but delivery options are also available for larger deliveries throughout the UK.

For more specialist projects, meeting booths are available to discuss your desired lighting architecture, enabling us to assist with regards to the overall theme and desired design of your lamp post. If you wish to meet with one of our consultants, we would recommend organising this in advance to your visit by contacting our customer service team on 0800 6888461.

Outdoor Lighting Display

Please note that our displays are constantly changing and updating. If there is a specific design that you would like to see at the Centre then please give us a call so that we can advise further with regards to stock and getting the product prepared for viewing.

Our Café

On site we also have a wonderfully well-equipped café, serving the very best in homemade food and sweet treats crafted from high-quality, fresh produce. Ideal for full lunchtime meals or a light refreshment as part of your visit, our Forge Café is certainly not to be missed!
