Angaston Blacksmith Shop & Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Angaston Blacksmith Shop (Doddridge Forge) is a working blacksmith museum on the main street of Angaston in the Barossa. See volunteers of the Angaston and Penrice Historical Society Inc. demonstrate the art of black smithing and guide you through three rooms of blacksmith memorabilia.

We encourage participation and welcome you and your family to the heritage listed smithy and Angaston Museum at the rear. Established on the present site in 1873, it has survived war, depression and countless technological revolutions to stand today as one of the few remaining main street “smithies” in Australia.

It was the industrial heart of the village of Angaston – a place of ideas and work, a place where young and old would come just to watch the blacksmith. It is a very special place and an extraordinary example of the ingenuity and commitment of a previous era.

The beauty of the Angaston Blacksmith Shop is its authenticity, its functional architecture and atmosphere which captures the essence of life through three generations of the Doddridge family’s blacksmith endeavour since 1849.

Items are for sale; something for mum, dad and the kids to see and experience.
