Traditional Estate & Parkland Fencing

We specialise in the manufacture and installation of traditional Estate fencing and Parkland fencing. Originally manufactured in wrought iron, the modern method uses mild steel and if installed properly is the strongest, most long lasting method of retaining stock or defining boundaries. As well as its longevity, Estate fencing represents a subtle elegance, its thin steel section being less intrusive and therefore enhancing traditional landscape. 

Our method of continuous welded construction results in a seamless fence with no visible joints, linking collars or clips. This gives the fence greater strength and flexibility to hug contours and follow graceful curves, as well as enabling clean circles This is the real thing, not be confused with the ‘modular’ version, which is usually imported, and sold in kit form.

We manufacture all components ourselves and install our fencing anywhere in the UK or Europe using our own fully employed specialist teams, We never use sub contactors.

One of the advantages of our method is its adaptability. Lower rails can be round or flat, We can change the rail spacing to suit (ie to match existing fence or gates) and can adapt the fence height or number of rails.

Most Estate fencing is painted black. In our case steel is shot blasted, primed, and painted on site with 2 further topcoats to give the best possible rust resistant treatment.

We have also been one of the pioneers of Bare metal fencing - a mild steel fence untreated and left to gradually rust. Apart from the natural rust colour which looks really good, it creates a really strong fence with minimum visual impact on landscape or views.


We generally do not recommend a galvanised finish except in extreme places. But can do so if required.
