Ilkley Blacksmith, Tom Bromley, is opening his new shop, Burnt Orchid, on Wednesday 6th December, located on Wharfe View Road.

Tom told Ilkley Chat: “I pride myself on using traditional blacksmithing methods and tools passed to him by the previous Blacksmith in Ilkley, keeping the heritage and legacy alive.

“Burnt Orchid specialises in a full range of metal works such as blacksmithing, copper smithing and welding and will undertake commissions, repairs and restoration projects. Some recent projects have included the restoration of the Manor House's external lantern and providing services to local establishments, Friends of Ham and Community Cutlery.

"Make sure to check my @burnt_orchid Instagram account to see recent commissions such as handrails, BBQ utensils, fire side companion set, dining and coffee tables.”
