The Foundry restaurant, used to be a forge founded way back in the 1878.

Frankwell Forge was a small industrial area by the side of the Welsh Bridge, founded in 1878 and closed only recently, in 2004. It closed to make way for the new theatre complex planned for the area. The name of the company which operated the site when it closed was "H and E Davies".

If you have any history on the site that the Theatre is built on, or the forge itself, we'd love to hear about it! Please drop us an email or pop in to see us!
