The forge in Arfeld was built in the middle of the 19th century and later expanded to include a wainwright's shop and a metal waterwheel. Wagons made of steel and wood as well as agricultural implements were manufactured under the roof of the forge and wainwright's shop.

Shoeing farm animals was also part of the daily work. When the forge ceased operations in 1970, the local heritage association took over. The members repaired and restored the forge, wainwright's workshop, tools and machines.

In 2004, an extension was built for the Arfeld Hamme, which was reconstructed according to original drawings. The exhibition of craft and agricultural equipment on the upper floor is also worth seeing. Today, the forge is a listed building and is definitely worth a visit - especially because the "ardent fans" can still forge iron over the fire themselves. You can even get married here: there is a wedding room in the smithy.
