The Locksmith House Museum

The Locksmith House Museum

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.

The Locksmith's House celebrates the efforts of the small family run lock making businesses which thrived over a century ago. Working from the back yards of their own houses, hundreds of small family businesses evolved.

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

The house is recreated with the actual belongings and furniture of the Hodson family of lock makers, the last inhabitants of 54 New Road, Willenhall. The family home is accompanied in the backyard by a two-storey workshop building.

A working forge and machinery adds to the atmosphere. Our lock display gallery offers an insight into some extraordinary locks from across the ages.
