Black Forge Art

Village & commercial signs

Our freshly installed Addiscombe sign for Croydon Council

At Black Forge, we work with councils, committees and organisations to individually design a sign for your village. We are official suppliers of public works of art and always offer to provide a design, full specification list and a quotation for approval prior to manufacture. We offer the full service from concept to installation, including oak post, decorative stone surrounds, hanging brackets for flowers, machinery, scaffolding etc.

Happy Yalding councillors at the unveiling of their new sign

We have made many prominent village signs across the country and installed many of these. We are also happy to delivery from the South East Kent where we are based to anywhere around the world.

We are a long established, traditional village forge coming up to our 25th anniversary, that specialise in bespoke, artist ironwork; which combined with skill, enthusiasm and a ‘quality without compromise’ work ethic will guarantee an end result that will stand proudly in your village for many generations.

Further information and many examples of completed village sign commissions can be viewed on our dedicated Village Signs website at
