Restoration Projects

Some of the most challenging and rewarding work I do is wrought iron restoration. In these instances I am called upon to match or repair historic wrought ironwork that can be over 500 years old. Some examples of my restoration work can be seen at St Davids Cathedral.

In the photograph opposite you can see some of the work I did on repairing and renewing iron work bannisters near the Cloisters that are thought to date back to the 1400's.

Other work in this commission included the repair and renewal of gates and railings - including the double, Norman arched gate at the top of this page. It is extremely satisfying work - particularly when I think of the blacksmiths who crafted these items all those hundreds of years ago.

Local blacksmith forge and workshop

Please have a good look around the website and in particular at the examples of my work on the portfolio page. If you like like what you see, you are very welcome to call by and discuss your requirements any weekday - or weekends by prior arrangement. My workshop is just half a mile off the A40 Haverfordwest to Fishguard road, near Letterston. It's a good idea to give me a call first to make sure I'm not out delivering a piece of work.

Customer testimonials

Dear Andrew, I just wanted to say a big thank you for the railings and gates you made for for me. I love the design and the attention to detail is fantastic. They look great now they are all painted and it gives me lots of pleasure looking out of the window at them.
Dear Andrew, I know it was only a small job by your standards but the curtain rail sets you made for us look wonderful now they are up and the curtains are hung. I don’t know how you manage all of that intricate forge work but the result is very impressive!
Andrew, I very rarely put pen to paper but I just had to write and say what a brilliant piece of kit the sheep trailer is. It’s really well thought out and the sheep seem to like going in it! It’s so sturdy and tows very well. I know it’s going to last for years. Thanks again.
