Open 7 Days:

During times of adverse weather and throughout public holidays, please do check our Facebook page for live updates and information about opening. Facebook updates are posted throughout the day to ensure you stay informed.

Please note that for September and March winter opening hours apply.

To ensure your visit is as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible, please ring ahead to make sure the items you are interested in are available in the size and finish that you want and make a note of the person’s name that you corresponded with.

As a company, we are very creative, and our passion is designing and redesigning fabulous new products. We aim to bring life back to many of the old and wonderful items of iron artwork that are no longer seen today. We have been able to delve deep, collect and recreate a huge range of stunning historical items which, otherwise, would have been lost forever. We pride ourselves on antique and vintage products that are a joy to see and a delight to use.  

Over the years we have had the pleasure of assisting many other companies and organisations by providing them with artefacts, products and props that we have been able to reproduce in stunning, and almost original, quality. We are proud to say that our products can be seen in films, such as Nanny McPhee and the all-star cast Murder on the Orient Express 2017 remake, as well as television dramas like Emmerdale and Hollyoaks.

The exciting drama Paradise Ladies was provided with our exquisite Victorian lamp posts and lanterns. Our stunning lacework pavilions, gazebos and tree seats have also been featured with Alan Titchmarsh on Love Your Garden with the Royal Alexandria gazebo displayed at the renowned Grand Designs show, held at the Birmingham NEC.

Sculptures & Animals

Our Showroom

We have everything from larger than life animals, flowers and water features, through to almost anything you could wish for the home, garden and grounds.


Not only do we make strong, beautiful hardware that is built to last but we have created delicate fretwork and hand-wrought scroll detailing for particular items, too. 

We now feel we can make an even bigger contribution to our local community by opening our doors and sharing what we do with anyone who would like to come along and see for themselves, the beauty that can be found in hand crafted products, and the diversity of things that can be made using metal. 

We offer membership, for a nominal yearly subscription, that will enable members to visit whenever they wish, enjoy a lovely cup of tea or coffee or perhaps a slice of homemade cake, and can benefit from discounts and special offers on anything they wish to take away with them.


We ensure members are kept up-to-date with regular newsletters and information on our shows and exhibits across the UK. 

All monies raised through the membership will be donated back into our local community, given wherever it is most needed.

We love, passionately, what we do. This a wonderful resource, that can be recycled time and again, is a fundamental part of our lives and a product that we cannot function without. To be able to bring it to you in a million different guises is our greatest joy!
