Moorforge Viking Settlement
[I]n a quite spot, just a couple of miles outside Cockermouth , David Watson has been building the foundations for a very unique attraction, A Viking settlement.
Being a blacksmith and with a keen interest in the Vikings, David started his project with a Viking era forge and has added a dark age workshop and living space.
With an ever growing site and with Wanderlove Glamping right next door , Moorforge Viking Settlement is fast becoming a busy place with great scope for workshops, school visits and events.
Moorforge will be holding a free open day with Viking living history, traders, have-a-go archery and talks on Saturday the 24th of June from 12 noon.
