The former  blacksmith's workshop, which is located in a building over 200 years old, was an  important part of the canal maintenance yard up until 1948.

Amongst the  items on display in the restored building, include anvils and tools required to  provide various metal parts (including nuts and bolts) to maintain the operation  of the canal. One of the Blacksmiths duties was to maintain and wind the yards  fine Tower Clock. The clock, which is a local landmark, has since been restored  and is now as good as new.
