Some of the more complex aspects of the Traditional Iron railing business centre around safety in and around listed buildings. Here we have an old burnt out mill ruin in Berkshire, this caught fire in the late 1700's and little has happened until the new owners recently purchased the property. The outer fabric has been repaired leaving the burned out centre but the mill race still rattles through at a serious pace. Access to service and inspect the new weir within the ruin was hazardous to say the least. Side rails and lockable doorways have now been installed within the framework of the building, allowing safe access to this wonderful snippet of our industrial past, without detracting or taking away its heritage.
This was an interesting commission , the old listed gates at the entrance to this classic English estate could not (understandably) be moved and a new set were commisioned further up the drive, this would aid the flow of visitors and reduce the snarlling up on the main road. Detail was taken from the original gates and matching side panels made by our craftsmen. These enormous panels will grace this drive for generations to come - once again showing that its all in the detail. The panels then flow into our Burghley 5 rail Estate Fencing with a pair of our traditional steel quadrant gates.
Small areas in your garden can often cause more issues than large ones. They are too small to mow sensibly and seem to be all edge. Here is one solution, the garden was centralised around a large Urn with our Legacy Steel edging retaining a narrow shingle pathway, all very square and symmetrical. This Northamptonshire Garden was completed with a short length of Burghley 5 rail Traditional Estate fencing ending with a 75mm corner post and round finial - Proper Job !
Legacy Steel Edging creates a natural edge to your lawn. This keeps the edge of the lawn from collapsing and keeps the pathway or beds where they should be. This can be a real headached and takes considerable of time and effort to repair. Straight Lawn edges are an intrinsic part of the Classic English Lawn. Legacy Steel Edging is allowed to rust naturally and melts into the garden landscape in a very attractive way. This style of edging is the edging of choice in many of our Classic Country Houses. The lawn can be cut up to and over the Legacy edging ensuring a perfect one pass finish. Legacy Edging comes in 3 thicknesses and covers all situations including driveways. It can be supplied in bare metal form, for you to install yourselves or can be installed by our experienced team of fitters.
