Resources

In developing this section of our website, NHIG’s aim is to become the hub for heritage ironwork information.

Our vision is to act as a focal point for the collection, publication, exchange and dissemination of this information. Although this section is in the early stages of development we trust it will evolve as additional information is gathered.

Current sections include Conservation Principles, Commissioning Guidelines, Articles, Guidance, Did you know and Links

We need your help to achieve our aim

If you have any suggestions for additions to this page please contact us.

The NHIG is a registered charity and relies on volunteers. Donations are vital to ensure we can continue our work.

NHIG Projects

We were delighted to receive a grant from The Foyle Foundation for our ironwork Glossary project which is now in development, and from the Lord Faringdon Trust towards our  ‘Colour’ of ironwork guidance booklet. We are hoping to secure the rest of the funding necessary to kick-start this project in the near future.

BathIRON – Save the date!

UPDATE 04/01/2017:

BathIRON has now been rescheduled for 2018.  This will give us time to secure the necessary funding and make BathIRON an even better event.  Dates to follow soon.  We look forward to sharing this unique and spectacular event with you in 2018.


An absolute must for your 2017 diary…Thursday, 8th June to Sunday, 11th June when the NHIG’s first major event will take place in the World Heritage City of Bath…

BathIRON will be a unique event aimed at heritage professionals and craft practitioners from all over the world, as well as the general public, with the principal aim of celebrating and raising awareness of one of our neglected national treasures – the country’s wealth of Historic Ironwork.

Supported by the British Artist Blacksmiths Association (BABA) and the Institute of Conservation (ICON), BathIRON will consist of a rare opportunity to attend a two-day Historic Ironwork Conference, to be held at Bath’s Grade 1 listed Guildhall, and a four-day Festival of Ironwork in elegant Parade Gardens.
