Visitor Information

The site can be seen from the road at all times. Bersham Ironworks is open by prior appointment for group visits and on special open days only.

Highlights of a visit to Bersham Ironworks include the excavated remains of the first blast furnace in Wales to smelt iron with coke, a unique survival of an 18th century wooden waggonway used to transport raw material to the works and tools and personal items found during the archaeological excavation. Displays tell the Ironworks' story and a light and sound presentation re-creates the typical workday of an 18th century foundryman.
