I'm looking for a source of wrought iron bar stock, small quantities, for
amateur blacksmithing.

From a post I saved (below). These guys advertise in the Anvil's Ring too.

I have posted the info below more than half a dozen times in the last 6
months as a search on Wrought iron or bloomery iron in Deja news will
show... perhaps this should be in the faq

the worlds only source of new made wrought iron is the blomery at
the Blists hill site of the Iorn Bridge gorge Site in Shropshire.
they sell it as 'Merchant Bar' either through the gift shop to the general
public... of to other Non profit Living history sites direct (at I suspect
a discount from the gift shop price) contact them for futher info re
exports and supply... the Bloomery ran last year in June July and Aug on
Mon Wed and Fri the foundry also has set days for pouring... call to be
sure they are runing if you plan a vist to see the works in operation... (I
think only one day a week do both run)
