In 2024, Elmbridge Museum is marking the 150th anniversary of the Thames Ditton Bronze Foundry, an integral part of our local heritage.

At the Foundry, bronze was melted down and poured into hollow moulds in order to create artwork, statues, plaques and other items. Situated on Summer Road, Elmbridge’s historic Bronze Foundry stood as a testament to craftsmanship and innovation since its establishment in 1874.

Featuring a significant contribution from the descendants of Edwin Joseph Packham, a key figure in the Foundry’s history, this exhibition delves into its rich tapestry of achievements and milestones.

Forging Art can be viewed during the Civic Centre’s open hours, which are –

Monday to Thursday: 8.45 am to 5 pm

Friday: 8.45 am to 4.45pm

Saturday and Sunday: Closed
