Here is a brief history of gates and railing manufacture
In the 15th century wrought iron railings started to appear and this material would be continued to be used up until the 1960’s until production costs and poor quality of materials forced major manufacturers to produce Mild Steel, cast iron railings and other cast iron products have been made from the second half of the 18th century
From the Georgian period through the Victorian period to the present day, Gates and railings combined both Wrought iron and cast iron, wrought iron railings where forged and foundry’s produced decorative cast iron finials, cast iron gate posts and cast iron panels to complement the wrought iron railings
Throughout these times gates and railings where still forged by a Blacksmith like ourselves.
