Getting to the Wareham Forge
| The Wareham Forge is located about half way between the small
towns of DUNDALK (to the south) and FLESHERTON (to the
north). This places it half way between the larger cities
of ORANGEVILLE (to the south) and OWEN SOUND (to the
north). Driving time from TORONTO (going NW) is about 2
1/2 hours, from KITCHENER (going NE) is about 2 1/4 hours.
It is about 45 minutes from ORANGEVILLE (going north).
Note that the Wareham Forge is a working facility, and there is no 'gift shop'.
Most objects are created as direct commissions, there is little completed work kept on hand.
'Shop Visits' without previous appointments are NOT encouraged. The forge may not be fired on any given day, and the shop is dirty and often chaotic. It is not layed out in a manner that suits (or is even safe for) casual observers.

Make your best route to HIGHWAY 10 - DUNDALK (NORTH out of SHELBURNE). There is a set of lights at the Dundalk turn off, corner of Highway 10 and County Road 9.
Note for anyone wanting supplies : There is an LCBO on the west side of Highway 10, just south of these lights. If you want food, turn into Dundalk, then travel about four short blocks. There is a supermarket to the north (off Main Street).
The following directions refer to landmarks on the Detail County Map above:

of the shop driveway entrance. For larger gatherings,
parking will be on the roads. It is suggested that you park
North along Road 41 - there is a lot of high speed traffic
on Centre Line!
