“Beautiful independent shops in a relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

This is a little haven away from the hustle and bustle of the cities... like the previous review there are an array of lovely independently owned shops, definately for the ladies... handbags, jewellery, clothing, hand made cards, antiques and crafts and beauty, oh yes, flowers and a lovely sandwich shop/deli, oh yes the cafe bakes fresh scones!! Deffo a must visit, oh yes the charity shop with 2 floors! and the lovely antique, crafts shop and wow you can hire a suit with style next door - sorry if Ive missed a shop out, its like an aladdins cave in there you dont realise...

“Shops galore !”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

The Forge is a lovely little shopping centre full of independent shops selling all sorts of things from flowers, jewellery, handbags, clothes, made to measure soft furnishings, gifts, antiques, delicatessen and takeaway food. There's hair and beauty salons and a cafe as well.

It was a bit tricky to find because it's not well signposted but the postcode is S18 1QX and it's just by the bridge footpath to Dronfield train station. Free parking as well.

You can easily spend a couple of hours browsing - well worth a visit.
