Established in 1994, partners Hazel and Les Withers have built up a successful small business, producing quality hand forged ironwork from their rural forge just off junction 17 of the M4 near Chippenham, Wiltshire.
With commissions from both private and public sector clients, the work undertaken is varied. Traditional pieces, some reproduction items through to fresh contemporary work; all of which is forged and finished to the highest standards. This has been acknowledged by the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths, London, who have issued both partners with certificates of merit. Essentially the work is in mild steel, heated in a traditional coke fire and hand forged over an anvil using centuries old techniques.
Items forged for homes and garden include, curtain poles, fire baskets, hoods and companion sets, candelabra, door furniture, signs, numbers and grilles, weather vanes, gates and railings.
Restoration work also undertaken, including, Victorian/Edwardian greenhouses, gates and railings etc.
