Walked passed while looking at the rest of the Seige Precinct sites. Frontage looks nice but it’s closed and has been sold - wonder if it’ll reopen with new owners?

We didn't go in as there was a sign out front for sale. It's near the police gun fight area across the bridge.

The blacksmith was helpful, informative and friendly. After looking around the shop (it's small but lots of interesting stuff) he pointed us in the direction of other attractions.
