Gallery - Showcase pedestrian gate
A fine example of the blacksmith's art: exclusively traditional forging techniques were used in its production
This showcase pedestrian gate is so called because it was entirely made using traditional blackmsithing techniques. It incorporates no electrical welding, no mechanical punching and no pre-manufactured parts.
We have a great personal attachment to this gate as it was designed by Tim to incorporate both his and Fran's favourite forged features, and was lovingly hand forged by Tim as his final examination piece when still in training as a blackmith. The outstanding quality both of the gate's design and of its execution helped Tim secure a Distinction as the final grade for his course. At the same time, but even more significantly, it also secured him - exceptionally early on in his career - his all-important recognition from the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths. This is the hallmark of competence for blacksmiths and an indicator of quality and skill for our customers.
