About Iron In The Blood

Our local, family-run business has been established since 1899 and is run by father and son team Tim and Oliver Bramston. The Iron In The Blood workshop is situated in the heart of Devon and we have extensive experience in steel fabrication as well as construction and restoration for domestic, agricultural and industrial clientele. Since going to university, Oliver has focused his skills on the metal work side of the business, while also furthering his studies on other metals such as copper, brass and silver.

The quality of Oliver’s work has led him to win multiple prizes and awards in the National Blacksmithing Competitions. They include North Somerset County Show Champion 2019, Dorset County Show Champion 2018 and Royal Cornwall Show Reserve Champion 2019. With his family history and passion for the craft, Oliver surely has ‘Iron In The Blood’.

Our History


Wm Jones and Son is founded by William Jones Senior

William Jones Junior takes on the business from his father.


William Jones Junior serves in WW1 as a blacksmith with the Royal Engineers. He also provides veterinary treatment for the horses.


William Jones Junior registers the business as William Jones & Son.


Developments to the business were made after WW2 and new machinery and methods of repair were brought in.

William’s son Clifford starts working for the business.

Clifford goes on to gain qualifications as a welder and his expertise becomes highly sought after. The business now offers steel fabrication as well as agricultural repairs.

Clifford takes over the business and changes the name to C H Jones & Son as it is known today.
