Shopping Centre


Lea Road,
S18 1QX


The Forge Shopping Centre in Dronfield is a unique collection of boutique style shops providing individual products and services for individual customers. The café conservatory area is the ideal place to sit and view the shops whilst enjoying a break, or, lunch. You can smell the flowers and see the jewellery and ladies fashions on show. Ladies accessories, fashion jewellery, chocolates, gifts, cards and candles are all available from the shops in the traditional Courtyard area, just outside the conservatory. There is even a genuine well.

Add to this.... a delicatessen, a hair and beauty salon, a chiropodist, soft furnishings, Peak Hearing and Ashgate by Design, and you can see why The Forge Shopping Centre is so popular with local people.

It's an exciting shopping experience with easy access, free parking and with close rail and bus links. Check out the "How to Find Us" page for more details.

The Forge building was originally a forge and it's history is told in the storyboards on display in the Church Street entrance. Many features of the original building are still being used today.
