Home is where the heart is, and whether we are fortunate enough to have a small townhouse in the middle of Chippenham, or a sprawling manor in the Wiltshire countryside, having a property to call your own is a real privilege. Many people who are interested in buildings dream of having an older house that is steeped with history, stories and charm. Chippenham and its surrounding area are home to many such properties, some of which are listed buildings, that still carry the charm and style of a time when traditional crafts were valued, and buildings were made unique.
One traditional craft that is still visible in many properties in the area is hand forged, bespoke ironwork. Chippenham homeowners who want to know more about bespoke ironwork for their property should read on!
Information on Bespoke Ironwork
Chippenham properties, especially its listed buildings, are full of bespoke ironwork. From doorhandles to kitchen fittings, nails to gates, and from curtain poles to fire surrounds, ironwork has long been an essential ingredient of older buildings, and often the bespoke ironwork is one of the longest lasting parts of the property! Anyone who owns or is responsible for an older building will need to consider the proper maintenance and care of their bespoke ironwork, Chippenham or elsewhere. Hazel at Hazel Moore Artist Blacksmiths, based in Kington Langley, is an expert in the care and restoration of bespoke ironwork. Having been involved in various projects across the area, and as a recognised contractor for the National Trust, Hazel Moore is well suited to the care and maintenance of any bespoke ironwork around the property.
Hazel Moore has helped in the maintenance and care of projects as simple as rehanging carriage gates to the full restoration of an Edwardian ironwork framed greenhouse at Norton, near Hullavington. Hazel Moore became an 'Associate of The Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths' (AWCB) in 2017 and has worked and trained with highly talented expert blacksmiths like David Hawkins, David Capes, Dave Petersen and Bill Poirrier.
