The Locksmith's House


An Edwardian house where time stood still, located in Willenhall, the Locksmith's House celebrates the efforts of the small family run lock making businesses which thrived over a century ago. 

A visit to the Locksmith's House will demonstrate how such a business operated alongside family life.
