Cast Iron Railings & Wrought Iron Railings
From the early 18th century, cast iron superceded wrought iron for railings and the wide spread use of basements in towns from the 17th century encouraged the widespread use of railings. It is important that in repairing or reinstating railings that wel detailed, good quality and substantial copies are used based on detailed research.

Master blacksmith specialising in traditional hot forging techniques. I design, make and install hand forged bespoke ironwork of the highest standards using traditional skills and techniques. All work is unique and designed with both site and client in mind. Whether contemporary or traditional in style the attention to detail and hand forged methods ensure the work is in keeping with, and enhances, its environment. I can also seemlessly restore, re-instate or replicate old wrought iron, and now offer have-a-go sessions teaching the noble art of the blacksmith.
