Please note: The Malham Smithy is not a faceless corporation, it is one person. One person that acts as the blacksmith, the designer, the estimator, the sales person, the purchaser, the accountant, the website updater, the enquiry taker, the covid keeping-safer, the maintenance person and the tidy upper. Whilst that one person will endeavour to respond to enquiries, it may take a while!

How to find us
