Blacksmiths’ Forge & Welding Workshop
We have ten state of the art forges in a recently converted farm building which gives students the opportunity to study towards blacksmithing and farriery courses. We have fifteen welding bays enabling students to learn MIG, Arc (MMS), TIG, gas cutting and gas welding skills.
We offer a wide range of top-class facilities and services to competitors of all levels. All these facilities are available to our students and can be hired for shows, rallies and training purposes. Click here to visit Kingston Maurward Equestrian facilities.
Gardens and Horticulture
The College is set within rolling lawns with substantial specimen trees bordering a large ornamental lake. The formal gardens are set in the arts and crafts Edwardian style with closely clipped Yew hedges creating a series of garden rooms. The walled garden has extensive plant collections including herbaceous perennials and season displays. We host two Plant Heritage collections of Salvias and Penstemons and our brand new glasshouses will bring Kingston Maurward College to the forefront of modern horticulture and significantly enhance our students’ learning experience. The new structures will house classrooms, tool stores, learning resources and production horticulture facilities. Sections will be dedicated to displays of exotic, ornamental, tropical & hothouse plants and a propagation area which will allow existing plant collections to be extended.
