The old forge at Brooke dates back to the 1800's and was originally part of the original cottages first built in the village and was still used as a forge into the 1970's. The forge has now had some temporary stud walls erected inside as well as plumbing in a small utility area for washing pots, tools etc. The original stable doors add character along with the beams and hooks on the wall which would have been used for tethering horses while shoeing was carried out. A mezzanine has been added which could be used as a seating area or additional storage. The property is approached via a low level fence with five bar gate leading to a low maintenance shingled frontage with parking for several vehicles, stable doors leading to the entrance hall with The Old Forge Room with original Old Forge chimney and original wooden beams, wash room and a secondary room with washing facilities and storage cupboards.
